    Question Fine Needle Aspiration

    I went to my surgeon today to have a fine needle aspiration on a lump in my right breast. No fluid came out just some tissue. Does this mean it's not a regular cyst? Are all cysts fluid filled?

    Cysts are fluid-filled. It sounds like what you are dealing with is a solid mass, but this does not mean that it is a cancerous mass. Have you gotten your biopsy results yet?

    Wishing you the best,

    Thanks for responding!

    Called the doctor yesterday and got my results. It's a lipoma (GOOD NEWS)!! He still want's to remove it to do further pathology on it just to make sure. No worries. Then I get home from work and I'm getting undressed and noticed my nipple (same breast) is crusty and oozing a little. Should I be worried? Not lactating in fact had a hysterectomy last year. Any comments?
