a couple of months ago I had ultrasound and the incidentally found a small cysts of 0.03 cm which I cant even feel. I was told it comes and goes with menstrual cycle and nothing to worry about. I now had another ultrasound for different reason and they cyst is still there. I still don't feel it and it doesn't cause me any pain, but I was wondering because I thoughts cysts go away on their own, buts it like 5 months and still hasn't gone away. I'm also pregnant so I don't have my regular cycles, I thought it will go away. can a cyst ever turn into cancer???

im generally a real worrier so I worry about this as well.

They don't necessarily go away, and benign cysts don't turn into cancer.

If it is a "simple cyst" which most of them are there is nothing to worry about. They might come and go with menstrual cycles or other reasons (diet/caffeine impacts me) but sometimes they stay around for years. If it gets bigger and starts causing pain they can aspirate it. Even with aspiration, if it is a simple cyst, they usually don't even bother sending the fluid out to the lab.

History of fibrocystic and dense breasts (pain, cysts, aspirations, biopsies). 1.4 cm IDC at age 49 after "benign" flare up earlier this year (2017) Healthy lifestyle, no genetic mutations. Sometimes it is just bad luck. Dx 5/5/2017, IDC, Left, 1cm, Stage IA, Grade 2, 0/5 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- Surgery 5/25/2017 Lumpectomy: Left; Lymph node removal: Sentinel Hormonal Therapy Tamoxifen pills (Nolvadex, Apo-Tamox, Tamofen, Tamone)
