Re: what is a complicated cyst in the breast

My adventure started with the words "You have complicated cysts in both breast". I had no idea what complicated cysts were either so I asked my doctor to explain. "When you have an imaging test done one any part of your body, not just the breasts. They look to see if there is the presents of simple or complicated cysts. Simple cysts can be regarded as part of normal aging. Complicated cysts are varients of these simple cysts. These complicated cysts need careful evaluation, because the are different than they should be." A pretty simple explanation, but it helped me to understand. I hope it helps you also.

Re: what is a complicated cyst in the breast

I am being evaluated for a complicated cyst. I think it got complicated because there is scar tissue in that area from where I had a surgical biopsy. Complicated cysts by themselves are almost never cancer, but if there is also thickening then sometimes they are. I'm basing this on what the nurse told me and a study that I found online by searching on complicated cyst.
