    Default Breast cyst

    Has anyone had one before?? I found a lump in my breast on Friday night, got it checked out on Monday and the Dr seems to think this is the most likely thing considering there is no family history of breast cancer and my mum has had a few cysts herself. I'm off for an ultrasound on Monday to find out for certain.

    If you've had one, was it painful at all? At first the pain would come and go but now it's almost a constant burning sensation and is actually spreading. What helped with the pain?

    TIA

    Yeah I have lots. It is worse when my period is due (cyclic) and also hard Breastfeeding. I have mammograms and ultrasounds regularly too. Yes they are painful especially if touched, one side is worse and often get a burning sensation in that nipple.

    Best thing I've found is regular dose of evening primrose oil tablets but you need a lot. I take 2-4 daily (1000mg).

    Cysts are common. Some people have many in each breast. Affectionately known as lumpy boob syndrome.

    Usually monitored via US every 1-2yrs.

    The lump and the surrounding area aren't painful to touch. I have evening primrose oil here so I can take that.

    I was reading that they're quite common and many women have them without knowing.

    I have one and have had a couple of ultrasounds on it with no changes present. Mine isn't painful at all, it's fluid filled they tell me and will be painful if it ever burst. I've also had a fatty lump which was really prominent again diagnosed by ultrasound, that one went away on its own. Now I've a node up under my arm that the doctor wants me to have another ultrasound on.

    Default Breast cyst

    Before I got pregnant I had a noticeable cyst. I got a shock when I had the u/s when they said I had 7 in each breast. I decided not to have it drained because it wasn't bothering me much. When I got pregnant, that one and I'm guessing at least some have burst. I don't get horrible sore breasts now for 2 weeks of each cycle

    Yes, quite a lot in each breasts years ago which were quite obvious because I'm small breasted, but had an ultrasound on my breasts and they were just fatty tissue and cyclic thank goodness. I don't remember them sore as such, just general tenderness in the breasts.

    Hope you have the same outcome Chunkydunks.

    Thanks everyone. The stress of not knowing for certain is getting me down a bit but I'm sure everything will be fine.

    I hope it goes well I think they say 9 out of 10 breast lumps are completely normal but best to get it checked for peace of mind this is why I have them done regularly. An expensive but reassuring process! good luck hope it's all fine

    Have you had your iodine checked? Breast lumps can be a sign of iodine deficiency. Get the urine test done. Most people think iodine is just for thyroid but it's responsible for breast tissue, prostate etc.
