I am in my mid 50's. Everytime I've had a mammogram a sonagram has been ordered with the resulting findings to be simple cysts.
This last one was a bit different with the finding of a complex cyst. I've had the lumpectomy which was found to be benign. In all of the hustle & bustle to finalize everything before the surgery and trying to convince my husband things would be OK I forgot to ask about reoccurence. And if there is a reoccurence, what then? Another biopsy? Another lumpectomy?
Once a complex cyst has been discovered the first time what are the chances another one will pop up again?

Please ask all of the questions of your Doctor and do as much research as you can. Someone here will be able to help you, but each of us are very different.

My sister has had to have several cyst removed and each time it required a biopsy or removal. Always benign. She actually hasn't had a reoccurence for some time. So for her it stopped.

I agree w/ Candy. Please call you dr and ask this question. It isn't unusual to forget to think of things like this w/ all of the stress that we are under before the surgery. I am sure that he won't mind your calling him.
