I’m not in the same situation, but just wanted to leave a message sending my support!  Don’t worry about the biopsy – just schedule it as soon as you can so that it’s not hanging over your head.  It is very possible that the cyst is benign, and even if it is something else, it is better to know.  You can then deal with what this might mean for you and your family realistically.

My mom received a surprise diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ two Christmas’s ago, but she has since received treatement and is cancer-free.  One of my friends, in her late twenties, also recently had to go in for a breast biopsy, and the results were completely benign.  Unfortunately, it seems that with the nature of breast tissue and the viewing technology of mammograms, you can’t be sure of what something is without taking the next step (of a biopsy).  I know it is incredibly difficult, but try to put any fears or worries from your mind until you get the biopsy results back, by reminding yourself that you are taking the correct steps and that you can’t do anything in the meantime.  I hope you hear good results!

My mom had a mammogram that came back suspicious- went and had a biopsy- turned out to be a benign cyst. A worrisome time for sure. Hope your turns out to be nothing too!
