Need reevaluation: Breast cysts are almost always benign. If they are syptomatic or in case of any doubt about their cystic nature they can be aspirated. Otherwise observation is ok. If you feel a lump and your provider did not identify it, do not assume it is a cyst. Have another evaluation preferably by a breast specialist to make sure it is not a more significant lump.

Nothing further need: Cysts are quite common in the breast. They are benign. So nothing further needs to be done.

Cysts: are common and benign. Physicians will never be able to individually palpate all of the cysts that are discoverable on ultrasound. If they were categorized as BIRADS 2(benign), nothing further needs to be done.
