Cysts in Breats.

I am 17 years old and I have multiple cysts in my breasts. They do at times, get very painful. I think I have had them for about 3 years now and I have also had them looked at with an Ultra sound.

A year and a half ago, I started the pill Yasmin. I'm wondering if that has caused the cysts to increase, or that I am older and more aware of them now.

Also, does getting them drained/ removed hurt? I'm worried!

Re: Cysts in Breats.

Good afternoon - I have fibrocystic breasts which are lumpy and sometimes very painful. Two years ago, the surgeon was concerned about a lump in my left breast that wouldn't stop hurting so he did an ultrasound after my mammogram. He did some sort of "punch" biopsy in his office that came back negative but we decided, as a precaution, to surgically remove the lump. As he was examining my other breast, he found another one that needed to be removed as well.

The surgery was done as outpatient and took about an hour. Had to wear 2 sports-bras 24/7 for a few weeks. Keeping bags of frozen veggies on my breasts helped w/the swelling. Couldn't lift anything for a week or 2, but was able to return to work within 7 days.

Pain wasn't bad; was prescribed Oxycontin but only had to take, 3, maybe 4 pills, and that was the day of & the day after surgery. After that, was able to manage with OTC meds or nothing at all.

Good luck
