Hello, Teach! Bilateral just means both sides. So, they'll mammogram both sides. Will it be a needle biopsy? In that case, they just go in with a needle--even if it's a core needle biopsy--nothing a band aid can't cover. The doc will tell you how long...at least a few days. But she/he may set up an appt with you to give you the results.
Keep in mind that MRIs are VERY sensitive. Just because it's a mass doesn't mean it's cancer. It's so great that you're getting it all checked out, but don't worry too much about not feeling anything and having something show up on MRI.
Best of luck!
