    I'm not a doctor but they probably don't want to do a biopsy on a person your age unless absolutely necessary. It sounds like it is really small and may be difficult to see it to do a biopsy. I had 2 areas and after a positive biopsy only then was an MRI ordered to see if was 2 separate areas or 1 large one with an area coming off of it. I understand you have a strong family history of breast cancer, I had none but when all was said and done I had 4 areas of cancer in my one breast.
