Do great-aunts having breast cancer affect risk for this disease?Or is it only first-degree relatives, (mom, sister, daughter)? 2 great aunts had it.

Also depends on the ages at which the patients developed cancer and whether there are other types of cancer in the family. Talk to your gyn or pcp, maybe you need to see a professional with expertise in cancer genetics and risk assessment. ...Read more

I am a single mom. I felt a big mass in my breast. I got a mammogram done which showed a cyst. I wanted it drained for cancer cell evaluation? Should I go for it?

I am a single mom. I felt a big mass in my breast. I got a mammogram done which showed a cyst. I wanted it drained for cancer cell evaluation? Should I go for it?

Treating fear with: A surgical or radiology directed procedure cures neither the tendency to form cysts or the scared feeling that causes the question. Giving reasons will not allay your concern. Age, family history, medication, physical finding and other history could influence, but cyst spiration and cytology each time you get a cyst is wasteful use of resources. You need help, but not cytology. ...Read more

Findings: I'm guessing based on the info you are giving that the left side has benign changes. This means things seen that can be classified as either suspicious or benign. Benign findings usually means the radiologist doubts its of concern, but wants another mammogram in a year to confirm stability. ...Read more
