    If it is possible she should go to a breast center, not just the xray department of the hospital.

If needed they do the biopsy right then. I don't think I'd ever go anywhere else.

    This is the one I use, Dr Cupples is fantastic, but there are breast imaging centers everywhere.

    I began finding lumps in my breasts when I was 15 years old. I have a family history of fibrocystic breast disease, so I wasn't worried. They tend to come and go from month to month.

If I didn't have a family history of this then I would have freaked out, and had it checked out my more than my family physician.
