Had my ultra sound today.....

I had my ultra sound today to see if the two masses in my right breast were trouble or not. I am very lucky - They are just simple cysts and no other tests or follow up is necessary. I was very scared, but glad I did some research before I had the procedure done. Had I not known what a cyst looked like on an ultra sound I would have freaked. I saw what appeared to be a HUGE black mass in the middle of the film!
But both spots were oval shaped with smooth edges and no signs of cancer. I feel truly blessed and my heart and prayers go out to all that are fighting this disease.

Susieq, so glad to hear this. Sit back now and have a relaxing evening, go out to dinner and have a glass of wine (if you drink) or tea (if you don't). Thanks for letting us know.

Re: Had my ultra sound today.....

Hi gals! Susieq I am so happy for you. So glad you got good news! Time to celebrate. I had my ultra sound today too. I have cysts every year so I knew they look like round black spots on the screen. The black means clear fluid. I was so relieved when I saw mine look just like that. My cyst is kind of big, it measured 2.7 cm. My doctor called tonight and told me it is a cyst. The guy who checks the film out didn't even say I need to come back. But my doctor asked if I would like to see the surgeon and see if he wants to drain it. Yikes! Now I am scared. Anyone ever had that done?

Thumbs up Re: Had my ultra sound today.....

Hi Susieq

I am so glad for you that your ultrasound showed cysts and not something malignant. I have fibercystic disease in my breasts so I've had several utrasounds done over the years.

Take care, Nadine

Re: Had my ultra sound today.....


I have had cysts in my breasts for 15 years, off and on. Some large, some very small, some hurt, others don't. I have also had them drained a few times, and to me it was not all that bad. I have had them drained in the gyne's office and also at the hospital with ultrasound assistance so they could see what they were draining. The first time I had it done, the doctor asked if I would like him to numb the area first but I chose to just let him drain them. He simply felt for each cyst based on the US results, and inserted a needle with a syringe attached and sucked the fluid out. It was no worse than getting a shot. When I had it done at the hospital with US assistance, the cyst they were draining was very deep and hard to reach so it was more painful.

I was told by my gyne that it is not necessary to drain a cyst if it is not bothering me. I only have them drained when they begin to interfere with sleeping comfortably or if I have a lot of pain from them. I am seeing my gyne next week, in fact, to see if he will drain a couple that I have right now that have grown in size and are bothering me. This is a different gyne due to insurance changes and we have not yet discussed how he would treat cysts, so I am hoping he will drain them himself and not make me have a surgeon do it. If he does insist on a surgeon, I will enlist the one who recently did several surgeries on me since I am familiar with him. Either way, to me it's not something to stress about, just something that is more of a nuisance.
