Melinda,
Hello and welcome, yes before breast cancer I had these and had some of them removed to make sure they were not anything to be concerned about. They started in my 20's and the last one I had removed was in 2006. I was dx with breast cancer in 2008 but the cancer was in the breast that I never had issues with. I also had fibro cystic breast since I was in my teens. I was told that these two are very common in women with bigger dense breast I was a size D to DD before my Bi Mast in 2008.

Roberta,
Thank you for your information on your experience with benign cyst. I am 46 years old and this began about a year ago. The Dr. said it could result from my dense breast tissue, caffeine intake or possible hormones. My concern... do I have every lump scanned. I am concerned about radiation exposure. I can feel new bumps. Thankfully, each scan showed only benign cyst. What do you advise about testing each lump? I have had two done plus my regular mammogram.
Thanks,
Melinda

Melinda,
Hello, if it seams all they are is cyst and nothing to be worried about I would keep it to a min of once a year. But that being said if the doctor seams concerned and thinks it should be checked then by all means have it checked. One way to know if it is different from the ones you have now is to get used to your breast. Do self exam when you take a shower or bath yes every time. Know how the cyst feel now if they start to feel different or you get a new one that feel different get right back to the doctor and have it checked and yes maybe scaned. That is what I did and I found my own lump and found out I had cancer early because of checking every time I took a shower. You are your own best advacate and doctor who else knows your body as good as you do ?! So you will know in your gut and heart if you need to get a scan done and when but at least once every 18 months if you are getting a lot of lumps is a good call if you ask me. Just to be sure nothing else is going on in there. I wish you all the best and good health nothing but cyst to come of those lumps. May you have a great day angel hugs Roberta,
Roberta
