Hello Katy.lori,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us for an answer to why the breast lump returned.

That question can only be answered by the physician who treated you in the hospital. Do you have a primary care physician?

You need to contact either your own doctor or return to the hospital. At the hospital, there will be your chart on file. The doctor's notes will tell what he or she thought the lump was. It could be a breast cyst, which is a fluid-filled sac inside the breast. It is usually not cancerous (benign).

Experts don't know what causes breast cysts. They may develop as a result of hormonal changes from monthly menstruation. Some evidence suggests that excess estrogen in your body, which can stimulate the breast tissue, may contribute to breast cysts.
