I was diagnosed with a 1.4 CM hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. I have a history of thyroid cancer. Can these cysts ever be cancerous? Thank you

Yes. Ovarian cancers can be and often are cystic. However, you should discuss this with your doctor as small cysts with hemorrhage are far commoner than ovarian cancers. In the mean time you may consult this site for information on this topic. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ovarian-cancer/basics/definition/CON-20028096.

Stop doing this . If your radiologist is confident that this is not cancer, trust them. You may request reading by another radiologist.

Unnecessary . Breast cysts are caused by blocked ducts within the breast and do not require biopsy.
