Hi..my name is Evelyn
I have found a small cyst like thing under my left breast about 2-3 months before..at first I thought it was a pimple and I neglected it..
But recently I have noticed the cyst has become somewhat bigger than it already was..it is firm also.
Do you think it is cancerous.help please
Thanks for your post.
I can only imagine what’s going through your mind right now, coping with this situation can be very difficult.
It’s natural to worry about any changes in your body and until it has been checked out you will only continue to worry.
Breast cysts are not always cancerous. It’s important to get these things checked out by your GP. If nothing else to put your mind at rest.
If you think it would help why not give us a call.
If you have any further questions, you can get in touch via email.
