Microscope 21 Year Old with Breast Mass

A 21-year-old woman with no family or personal history of breast cancer presents with a small, firm mass in the lower inner quadrant of her right breast that seems mobile when palpated. It is nontender. There are no overlying skin changes or nipple discharge. Which of the following would most likely be found on biopsy of this mass?
(A) Blue dome cysts and some atypical epithelial hyperplasia
(B) Cells in a single file formation
(C) Fibrosing stroma around normal-looking glands
(D) Large cells with clear “halos”
(E) Multicentric lobes with lymphocytic infiltrate
