During a mri on my shoulder they found enlarged lymph nodes I ahd not been sick so they suggested a mammogram..had that and they found something unusually and sent me for an ultrasound the ultrasound found cyst and they said that their was some unusual color and said to come back in 6 months
the cyst and the enlarged lymph nodes is that a sign of cancerous cyst?

For such thing I would advise you to say for seeing your doctor sooner than 6 months. Such thing your explaining should be taken care of right away. How old are you if you don't mind me asking? This way can cause you to have stress and can become problem after awhile. I hope you see a doctor sooner and please keep us posted.

Good Luck,

Hi Anonymous,

It could be a cancerous cysts however this isn't always the case since it could be fibrocystic breast cysts which are harmless.

Please consult this with your doctor so that s/he can best clarify your particular findings and help ease your mind as to why they are seeing you in 6 months. There's no use speculating over this when in reality it may just cause unnecessary stress.

Wishing you the very best--please keep us posted,
