US picked up a pea sized cyst in upper R breast, another US in 6 months. Can a pea sized cyst lead to BC? I'm 24, no family history of BC
Cysts are usually: fluid filled and benign. Fibrocystic breast disease is considered benign. BC aren't cysts, but are solid massed tumors. Family history is no longer the reason women get BC. Environmental toxins and epigenetics are pointing to many BC occurring in families with no history. So do your monthly breast exam, get your F/U US in 6 months, eat a clean diet (no GMOs, sodas, sugars, processed, fried foods.) ...Read more
