Cysts are common.: Complicated means something that is a problem in medical lingo. I've seen this word misused for "complex" which means a structure with many parts. Please ask your primary care physician to have this and a previous mammogram compared. This will establish if this is to be observed or further testing is needed.

A cyst with: a thin internal septation is by definition a BIRADS 2 finding. A BIRADS 2 code means "benign", the chance of malignancy is well below 1%. Nothing to worry about.
