So, I went down to the radiology technician and was told that I would hear the results sometime next week. Wow, I sure did not feel better walking out of her office. They got me right in because nobody else was waiting. The technician was really nice and said he would know something right away and talk to his doctor and let me know right then if they had to do more test or if it was just a cyst. He has been the only one so far that has actually seemed to understand that maybe I might be concerned this was cancer??? Wow.
So, the ultrasound looked just like this picture I got off the internet. Fluid filled, about 3 1/2 cm long. The ultrasound tech said that if the lump is moveable, it is most likely not cancer. If the lump doesn't move with the breast tissue it is most likely cancer. Wow, simple test and really put my mind at ease. He said to always have them checked out, but makes it easier to wait for the testing. Cancer likes something to grab onto and hang onto. It doesn't like to move around. He said they don't know why these cysts form and said I could have it drained again, but since this one filled up again so quickly and came back bigger, it would probably come back again. He said I probably had more of them and that some people get them and some don't. Gee, aren't I lucky :) Now, if only I could get one on the other side to even me out a bit!
