Could it be fibrocystic breast disease? This is very common and it is good that you will be following up in 6 months if this was your first mammogram repeating your mammogram in 6 months will show if there is any changes you may want to ask for an ultrasound as a ultrasound can make sure that the cyst are fluid filled and not a solid growth.
Do not be afraid to call and speak to the radiologist. They can answer your questions, and explain more about the cysts. This is your body, your peace of mind and your life. Just tell them you are worried and need to have more information about these cysts. Ask the doctor if you should have an ultrasound. This will help tell more about the consistancy of the cysts. You are your best health advocate! Do not feel you have to worry for months... call the doctor first thing Monday morning. Good luck and keep us posted.
Oops.... just read you had an ultrasound. THAT's GREAT! Call the doctor Monday morning and talk to him or her and have them explain the cysts. It is NOT uncommon to have a cyst or cysts in your breast. Take care, Sharon1
Demand a second opinion or biopsy! I was told the same thing and when I went back in 6 months it had metastasized. I'll be praying for you to find the right answers.0
Have a biopsy done they told me the same thing but my husband and I said we wanted a biopsy done and it was stage 3 breast cancer. That had started to spread0

Hi Anna, I also had small cysts. I had a fluid filled cyst in my left breast & micro calcifications in both breasts. I was being monitored every six months for any changes for over two years. Five months after a "clear" mammo & ultrasound....I discovered my right breast was very swollen on one side, hard, & had a bruised appearance. I went to my dr the following day for another mammo, & ultrasound. I then had a biopsy which confirmed cancer. When all my tests were finished I was diagnosed with stage 3C IDC. I know this didn't happen in a 5 month time period. So...my drs failed in diagnosing my cancer. And I wish I would have insisted on a biopsy on the calcifications. I have concerns when they want to wait six months. I've been there. It might be a good idea to get a biopsy done for your piece of mind. Eighty percent of biopsies are benign. But you never want to take that chance!! Best wishes Anna. Let us know how you are.0
