A 35-year-old member asked:

If I have cysts, can I breastfeed?

Dr. Megan Bird
Obstetrics and Gynecology 19 years experience
Yes: Cysts are benign, which means they are not cancerous or going to hurt you in the long run. They can get large during pregnancy however. Cysts by themselves won't prevent you from breastfeeding. If they are large and near the nipple, they may make it more difficult. You can talk to your doctor or lactation specialist about how to get around that.
