Depends...: It all depends on what the mammogram or ultrasound show about the cyst. If it looks benign usually a follow ultrasound is recommended in a few months( it varies).

Yes: But unlikely. There is a certain type of ovarian cyst that causes overproduction of estrogen and that could cause breast pain, though those cysts are unlikely. It's more likely that the 2 are unrelated. I don't see your age, so it's difficult to say why you're having breast pain, but most common is due to hormonal reasons, typically cyclical. If you feel a mass, go to doctor right away. ...Read more
Aggravate not cause: For many women, caffeine intake (coffee, chocolate, soda/pop, tea) can make fibrocystic changes more active (pain and lumpiness). Natural hormonal changes or hormone intake can cause this as well. Stress is a big offender because it causes us to release more of our natural hormones. Try decreasing caffeine intake and reducing stress. If no relief, contact your doctor. ...Read more
Ultrasound showed benign cysts on breast.. Will they go away? Any idea why they didn't show up on mammogram only ultrasound?
They may go away.: Benign cysts may enlarge or resolve or stay the same for years. Some say that eliminating caffeine from your diet may help. If the cysts are painful, needle aspiration may be curative, but otherwise nothing needs to be done.Cysts may be invisible on a mammogram when the breast is dense (glandular) and the cysts are hidden by adjacent normal tissue or if they are small. They do not become cancer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It takes just a couple minutes and will relieve the pain you are experiencing from the cyst. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had mammogram and ultrasound that confirmed tiny cysts in breasts. They are still there. What do I do now? Doctor missed one of them. I can feel both
Need reevaluation: Breast cysts are almost always benign. If they are syptomatic or in case of any doubt about their cystic nature they can be aspirated. Otherwise observation is ok. If you feel a lump and your provider did not identify it, do not assume it is a cyst. Have another evaluation preferably by a breast specialist to make sure it is not a more significant lump. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
