cysts don't generally turn into breast cancer, but they will cause breast pain. lots of women have breast cysts, including myself, that's where you've heard the term "fibrocystic breasts". The only exception is sometimes little cysts are really calcifications, and sometimes, they can be a sign of very early breast cancer.By the way, where my breast cysts are get very tender especially during my cycle. i have had them for about 7 years. so far no change.
