You are describing: a BIRADS 3(probably benign) lesion based on the ultrasound features. By definition, there is less than 2% chance of malignancy, and the usual management in an average risk patient is short interval follow up, typically every 6 months for 2 years.

If you are REALLY concerned, or if the breast is causing you symptoms, you could look into having a doctor / surgeon drain the cyst and send the fluid for cytology (to look for odd-looking cells).

Any mass that does not go away within 2 weeks requires evaluation by your doctor. If a biopsy (tissue sample) is required, make sure a needle biopsy is performed first. The results come back in 2-3 days.

Only if it's cancer!: Unless you can be sure that lump is not a cancer, you should have your doctor check it out. It could be a cyst, benign fibrous lump, or just a "nothing." but, it could also be an early cancer. Wouldn't you want to find out for sure? And don't let a doctor tell you it's ok without having more proof if indeed this is something different from the rest of your breast tissue. "thinking" is not proving!
