Cysts - Do I need to do anything? Im still worrying.
A small (4mm) cyst was found in my left breast in my annual mammogram in January, 2021. I had a follow-up mammogram and ultrasound 6 months later (July 2021) as recommended by the radiologist. That test showed the cyst had increased in size to 5mm. I had another mammo and ultrasound 6 months after that, (January 2022) and the cyst had again increased in size to 6mm. My oncologist insisted that it is definitely a cyst and I do not need to worry or do anything about it and recommended having my next mammogram in a year. My question is (and to my oncologist) is how big does the cyst have to get before you do something about it (if anything)? She said that unless it bothers me and causes pain usually do anything about them. Obviously I'm not comfortable with finding out it keeps getting bigger every 6 months. We discussed having getting it aspirated, but she said it was so small that she didn't think they would get anything out of it. Has anyone else had a similar experience with cysts?
