I have this too! its not quite as big as yours sounds but its so irritating!! It likes to fluctuate in size. Uhg I’m wondering too when to “do something about it” it hurts at random (I think with my cycle?) not really sure, and also if my cat steps on me when im lying in bed or anything else presses on it, ouch. I have acctually recently been thinking its due to my birth control and have been considering going off of it to see if it goes away on its own…

Yes, very very annoying… I have a gangaloin (sp?) cyst too which in in the joint of my wrist and I know with that one it can be drained or surgically removed but my doctor said that it would most likely just grow back! So i’m assuming it is the same with the breast cyst although i’m not positive. I would like to look into a holistic way (with diet or other natural ways) to shrink it for good!

I had one when I was younger but it went away.  If it stays and/or grows and is near your armpit I would find someone who will look at it.  Just in case.

@Tunacupcakes: good, I’m glad you’ve had it checked out!  I’m not trying to freak out out here but people who get cysts like that are more apt to get breast cancer, so I understand.  I had one when I was young and my mom has breast cancer now and I believe she had them as well.  It could be a freak coincidence of course but I would get it checked out every few years.

i have one. i had a biopsy and it ended up being a fibroadenoma. the doctor said it wasn’t too serious but to just keep an eye on it to see if it gets bigger. it hasn’t but it’s similar to yours: it’s not as big, i don’t think, but every so often pain radiates from it. nothing like grabbing my boob when it does hurt! lol

my doc said if it gets to a point where i can’t stand the pain or it grows bigger then i should have it removed. so far we haven’t gotten there yet. i’m not sure how long i’ve had it but i know i had it for a while before it was finally checked out.
