If you are suffering from symptoms or have been diagnosed with a breast cyst, you should consult a specialist Breast Surgeon. Breast cysts are not cancerous, however a cancerous lump can be ignored in background of multiple breast cysts and hence a thorough evaluation is must. Small size, asymptomatic breast cysts are treated with medicines and supportive care only. A large or painful cyst can be aspirated, where the fluid inside the cyst is removed by a syringe. Sometimes a repeat aspiration is required before the cyst resolves completely.
A surgery is recommended as treatment of breast cyst, if ultrasound is showing suspicious features, if the cyst fills up again after aspiration or if the aspirate is bloody.
