How to do a Breast Self Exam? What do you look for? What does a breast cancer cyst feel like? How big or small is it? Also, is it painful?

Learn your lumps

General_anesthesia
The most important thing in breast self exam is to learn what is a normal lump for you. Breasts are naturally lumpy but have a pattern. Anything that does not feel like your normal tissue, should be evaluated by your doctor.

Fibrocystic breast disease- can the cysts burst?

No

Fibrocystic_breast_disease
Breast cysts may be firm or painful. Many will resolve after the menstrual cycle. Needs an exam and ultrasound to be sure it is a cyst. Can have office needle aspiration to remove the fluid if the cyst persists or gets larger.

I have a boil like cyst that reoccurs on the outside under both my breasts and it irritates the surrounding area what is this?

Folliculitis…

Cyst
is possible. if these are recurrent is possibly caused by staph bacteria and increasingly more common a specific type of staph bacteria called MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). If this is the case it can be treated with an oral antibiotic and often the concomitant use of an antibiotic ointment intranasally. Occasionally these have to be drained surgically.

Dr. David Sneid answered:

Can I take hormones to get rid of an ovaryan cyst and also enlarge my breasts?

Not related

Hormone
Ovarian and breast cysts are not caused by hormone imbalance. Ovarian cysts are left each month when you ovulate; breast cysts are common, but need to be evaluated when they occur. There is no hormonal balancing required.

Is it necessarily bad that while taking Effexor my breasts became larger, harder, more painful and that my ovarian cyst became inflamed?

Need to ask on-gym

Cyst
Effexor has been noted to cause all the symptoms you noted. A prudent psychiatrist would defer to your gynecologist's opinion regarding potential harm based on your individual history and your family history.
