Biopsy for "atypical" fibroadenoma

Well, I finally got scheduled for an ultrasound-guided needle biopsy-- will have at the end of the week. totally nervous and won't rest until I hear "benign." The radiologist told me he's pretty sure it's just a fibroadenoma (he saw 2 masses on the US, said one is definitely FA) but the only way to be certain is to do a biopsy. Radiology report said "corresponds to BIRADS 4" (somehow, as confident as he was that it's FA I thought I'd get a '3'). It's immediately adjacent to the other FA but says "somewhat atypical" because it "appears taller than wide."
Guess it's normal to be nervous. Hate to have to wait over a weekend for results, but probably won't know anything until mid next week.
