Hi Susan,
How are you? How was the biopsy? Management usually depends on  the diagnosis, type of the diagnosis, symptoms and medical history of a patient.  Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery or hormone therapy may be done. The presence of risk factors such as age, personal history of breast cancer, family history, radiation exposure and postmenopausal hormone therapy are also considered. Take care and do keep us posted.
