The ‘number of biopsies’ question is only used by Gail and TC, both of which are not applicable for breast cancer patients, so the answer would not change calculations anyway. I would tend to say zero, as that was the count before the cancer was known. Once the patient has cancer, the number of biopsies becomes irrelevant for risk calculations.
