Hi,
First of all let me tell you that we in this Forum are not doctors or radiologists who are able to explain with certainty the findings on a biopsy results.
From what I understand on your report, is that you have dense fibrocystic breasts.The biopsy done a few days ago reveals a Fibroadenoma which is a benign (non cancerous) growth.All the terms used Apocrine Metaplasia,stromal fibrosis,duct ectasia etc...are not indicative of malignancy but commonly associated with Fibrocystic changes which is very common and a benign condition.
I am sure that soon you'll see your doctor who will be able to explain everything to you and reassure you completely..
Best wishes...
