Persistant focal asymmetry in right breast on both view. Ultrasound found fluid cyst but is smaller in size to focal asymmetry in mammogram. Worry?
Follow directions.: Just follow directions from you DR, but make sure you do go in for followup.
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Sometimes.: There are lesions that can be determined with a high level of assurance to be benign and lesions that can be determined to be malignant. There are also many lesions that cannot be determined with a high degree of certainty with these sstudies alone.See 2 more doctor answers
Had a breast cyst monitored every six months. Now mammo say it has undefined borders. Going for follow up mammo and ultrasound. Cancer likelihood?
Abnormal cells found in breast cyst on cytology. Cannot be seen on ultrasound due to aspiration so cannot do biopsy. Would MRI help?
Yes.: If the MRI is negative the likelihood of cancer is less than 2%. If an MRI is not obtained, a follow up ultrasound examination should be obtained and, if the cyst recurs, a core needle biopsy of it may be indicated. I assume you have had a mammogram? If not, one should be obtained.See 1 more doctor answer
Radiologist says possibly benign from ultrasound septated left breast cyst 1.4cm x 2.8cm. No solid Nodule and no internal flow. Is this serious? /bad
"Probably benign": Is the BIRADS classification (category 3)you are referring to. By definition, this implies a chance of malignancy less than 3%, and practically speaking it is probably more like 1%. The standard recommendation for a category 3 lesion is short interval follow up. Many consider a septated cyst a BIRADS 2 (benign) lesion requiring no follow up, so the overwhelming probability is that you will be fine
Does a breast cyst always need a needle biopsy radiology doc just suggest to do a follow up u/s and mamm in 6 months to make sure cyst has not grown?
No: A simple breast cyst or cyst with a single thin septation is very common and does not require biopsy or follow up. If it has a more suspicious feature (such a internal nodule, thick septation, etc.), then biopsy would be preferable to follow up. If a breast cyst is benign in appearance, it can still be therapeutically drained under ultrasound guidance to relieve symptoms.See 4 more doctor answers
Cyst: Your breast is covered with skin and therefore skin issues will occur. As long as the area is not red, firm, painful, it was most likely a sebaceous cyst.
What does normal breast tissue feel like? Or breast cyst? I don't know if im feeling a lump or just normal. Its movable, feels connected to tissue.
See answer: Tough to answer over the computer. Fibro-cystic breast disease is very common in young breasts, and is probably what you are feeling. The best advice for you is too a dr. And get a breast exam, and have the dr. Explain what is normal specifically to your breasts, and then when you perform an exam on yourself at least monthly, and notice any changes, you can alert the dr. Best wishes.
Probably not serious: Breast cysts are almost always benign and not deadly at all. Especially if painful, a breast cyst should be aspirated with a needle (usually an office procedure). The fluid can be sent for pathologic analysis but that can be confusing as benign cyst fluid contains cells that can be confused with malignant cells. If cysts continue to recur after aspiration, they should be excised.
See answer: Breast cyst aspiration is a relatively rapid procedure – local anesthesia / cutaneous – subcutaneous “numbing” is sufficient.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Fibrocystic breast changes and symptoms can often be felt more on one side than the other or only on one side. The discharge should be clear or yellowish. You should never see blood, as this is definitely abnormal and needs to be checked out. If you feel a lump or think you have a cyst, a sonogram should be performed to confirm that it is a fluid lump and nothing solid.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: The cause of breast cysts is unknown. There is some investigation ongoing into whether estrogen is involved. Breast cysts are very common, and usually benign. Make sure yours is evaluated by your physician.
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
