If boob ultrasound shows something that looks like fibroadenoma...

... is it almost certainly that?
I've just had a biopsy of a lumpy bit, which showed up on ultrasound as looking like a fibroadenoma. I'm relieved it doesn't look sinister of course, but just wondering why they have to biopsy it anyway? Do things frequently look like fibroadenoma and then biopsy as something different?
TIA. I know this is probably relatively trivial, but just wondering...

Thanks for asking Pisfor. I haven't heard results of the biopsy yet, but am assuming all will be well because it looked like a fibroadenoma on ultrasound. I just wondered whether I can pretty much assume it's OK on this basis or whether there's a not insignificant chance the biopsy will show something different.
