Breast cysts may develop within the structures of both breasts. These are common and, in most cases, noncancerous (benign). To be precise, these masses are fluid-filled bumps that usually require no treatment unless they cause pain or other complications for the patient.
Similarly to the surgical process described above, during ultrasound-guided breast cyst aspiration, surgeons will use the ultrasound to guide the needle precisely to the cyst instead, enabling them to do a more precise and less invasive job as with more traditional methods.
After the drainage, the cyst will collapse, and the fluid will be discarded unless there’s a suspicion that further examinations may be required.
