I have fibrocystic breasts and I have already had one large one aspirated. I went in for a mammogram and an ultrasound and found out that my breasts are riddled with cysts. I have done some research on the internet about this and I found out that no these cysts do not turn cancerous however if in the event you develop a cancerous lump, it can be harder to find with self examination and mammograms. Ultrasounds can determine if the lump is solid or fluid filled such as a cyst. According to what I have read online is that if you have a family history of breast cancer that you may need to go in for more frequent testing. Since cysts are fluid filled, they should move easily under your fingers. If the lump is more solid then that can indicate something else that should be addressed by your doctor.
My cyst literally developed within 3 days. It went from pea size to a golf ball size in that time. Blood in the cyst material can be a sign of infection as long as the pathologist didn't find any cancerous cells or precancerous cells. My cysts usually resolve on their own and I've only had the one aspiration. One thing that really helps is heat and caffeine avoidance.
