I just turned 33 years old. Two years ago I found a lump under my left breast. I have a family history of breast cancer. My dr ordered a mammogram and ultrasound which showed innumerable cysts the largest being 3.5 cm. Two years later my dr ordered another mamm and ultra which showed an increase in the cyst to 4.2 cm. birads 2. I do feel pain from it but I can handle it. Should I have it aspirated?? Any advice would help. Could they make a mistake and the cyst be something else? I have high anxiety. Thank you :)

I’ve had them too and always had them aspirated. I’m surprised your doctor didn’t. I would if I were you.

Keep us posted.

thank you for your reply. Do some doctors do it in their office?? I have to do it at the hospital (ultrasound guided). My doctor didn't seem concerned at all. I requested a referral for the aspiration...waiting for an appointment.

From last month i am constantly worried about breast size change. I am 27 years old and i am not pregnant. There was very mild nipple discharge and pain in both the breasts. But that stopped after i stopped taking antacids. Later i found that one of my breeast is little heavier and had pain in armpits. I went for ultrasound, they detected ductal ecastia and mastitis. I have taken medicines for 10 days but cant see decrease in swelling. Although discomfort has lessened. I am worried. Please advice. I have pain in upper back and skin allergy. No history of breast disease. Feeling extreme hunger these days,

Hi there Anxiousbird. I see from another thread that your doctor is suggesting you get your prolactin levels checked, yes? That seems like the right next step. Hope you feel better soon.

Yeah, I did sonomammograohy that showed benign breast condition and I took antibiotics. But it still occasionally pains. Does this mean tests missed out on something?
