Why do I decipher if my breast lump is a cyst and not a pulled muscle?

Why do I decipher if my breast lump is a cyst and not a pulled muscle?

Cyst appears as lump: Breast composed of dense glandular tissue in the young female. As one gets older, hormones that would induce fibroadenomas which are benign lumps shift activity. The duct system is activated and can fill at localized sites to present as a cyst. Mammogram can distinguish solid from cystic lesion and if large cyst present it should be aspirated. Large fibroadenomas should be excised. ...Read more

Plz C Breast Surgeon: Many breast lumps found on (self) examination are simply "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue. If a dominant mass is present, it could be a cyst, a benign tumor, or a cancer. The best way to differentiate these is to see a breast surgeon and/or undergo evaluation at a breast center. At your age, an ultrasound is the best test to differentiate lumps that count from those that are not concerning. ...Read more
