A 35-year-old female asked:

How accurate would 3 previous ultrasounds and mammograms in the space of 5 years be on a simple breast cyst? could that diagnosis be wrong?

Room for error: Any diagnostic medical test has room for error. The best diagnostic tool for a perceived breast cyst is fine needle aspiration/biopsy by a MD.
