How are breast cysts treated?

Most breast cysts need no treatment. If they look like simple cysts on an ultrasound and are not painful then they do not need care. They may even resolve on their own. Sometimes simple cysts can get painful if they enlarge quickly. These painful cysts can be aspirated in the office easily with no need for any anesthesia. If the cyst is complicated with findings that suggest a solid component, then they may need to be biopsied. Bottom line is, however, most cysts need no care.
