Breast cyst

Discussion in 'Health and wellbeing' started by jjcool, Mar 19, 2011.

  1. I had one right under the nipple when I was 50. Had private insurance because of OH's job so had all tests done in one day before I saw consultant. Mammogram and ultra sound showed nothing (even got the 'there's nothing there dearie' treatment from the male radiologist [​IMG]
    Went in to see consultant and pointed out where it was, and he agreed there was a lump. Had fine needle biopsy and waited an hour in canteen for results-I was benign-(a fatty lipoma I think he said), but had it removed the following week because of where it was-so many ducts and stuff in that area that it could lead to complications in the future.
    So what I am saying is don't rely on mammograms and the like-if you are definitely sure there is a lump, get it checked out for your own peace of mind
