Good morning, ladies!
I am a 35 yo woman with extremely dense, fibrocystic breasts. I have periodically had lumps and bumps checked out by u/s over the years and I've been getting regular mammograms every year for about 4 years now. For the last 12 months we've been "watching" a group of cysts (around 5 or 6) all clustered in one place (well, they've technically been watching the largest one and noticing the others via u/s every 6 months. The cysts have not been viewable on mammo until this month. The largest two are now sporting some "solid junk" in them and the u/s technician is describing them as complex.
The radiologist sent me a letter last week saying basically, "we noticed a mass during your last mammogram but we think it is probably benign" and would like to follow up with another u/s in 6 months.
No one at my doctor's office seems overly concerned about it, but I wonder if I should be?
I've never had a cysts persist so long and never with the solid stuff in them. Is that a typical change for a long lasting cyst?
Dr. Google has so far not been overly helpful but did land me here.
Thanks and God bless.
