Learning About Breast Cancer
Cysts are very common and rarely turn into cancers. But it's extremely important to find out whether what you have is just a cyst or something else. Even if you've had cysts in the past, if you find a new lump in your breast, don't assume it's a cyst. If the lump doesn't go away or gets larger, it's important to check it out further. Routine mammograms are important for all women, regardless of your history of cysts or other biopsy results.
