In brief: Very common...

Breast cysts are extremely common, especially in early adulthood.
However, it's important to know the type of breast cyst so that we know how to best deal with it. An ultrasound is usually needed to characterize the cyst. Occasionally, a cyst will need to be drained for diagnosis or relief of pain for the patient. Most of the time however, there is nothing special to do and we leave them alone.
