A breast cyst is a fluid-filled sac within the breast. One breast can have one or more breast cysts. They are often described as round or oval lumps with distinct edges.
During fine-needle aspiration, a special needle is inserted into a breast lump, and any fluid is removed aspirated. Ultrasound — a procedure that uses sound waves to create images of your breast on a monitor — might be used to help place the needle. After discussing your symptoms and health history, your doctor will do a breast exam and may order a diagnostic mammogram or a breast ultrasound.
A cyst in the breast may feel like a lump, but upon examination the lump is a small, generally harmless sac filled with fluid rather than a cancerous or benign lump of cells. You may have one cyst or many cysts that appear together. Be prepared to understand your results and empowered with critical information about your next steps. You may notice that the cyst comes and goes depending on the hormone cycle of menstruation.
An ovarian cyst is a sac or pouch filled with fluid or other tissue that forms in or on an ovary. Ovarian cysts are very common. They can occur during the childbearing years or after menopause.
Breast lump removal is the surgical removal of a cancerous lump inside the breast. A biopsy can show a lump in the breast is cancerous. The goal of the procedure is to remove the lump and some healthy tissue around the tumor.
Fibroadenomas are not cancerous. They range in size from smaller than a marble to as large as a golf ball. Most appear suddenly and stay the same size.
Breast lump removal is surgery to remove a lump that may be breast cancer. Tissue around the lump is also removed. This surgery is called an excisional breast biopsy, or lumpectomy. When a noncancerous tumor such as a fibroadenoma of the breast is removed, this is also called an excisional breast biopsy, or a lumpectomy.
