Recently had needle biopsies done on both sides, after finding some
small lumps that were confirmed by mamogram.  Dr. was able to get 3
samples from one side, but none from the other due to location.

Results from the 3 samples on the one side were: Calcium deposits; all benign.

1.) What is the statistical liklihood that calcium deposits in
clusters are NOT benign?

2.) What is the statistical liklihood that on side's deposits are NOT
benign when the other side's are?

3.) What is the % of women who get calcium deposits after
breastfeeding (I did for a year)?

4.) Can calcium deposits be reabsorbed?

5.) Any other information regarding cancer surgery: there seems to be
some new thought that performing surgery on cancers BEFORE doing chemo
or radiation really makes things worse (they get worse much faster due
to surgery).

Thanks for your help!
