Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern.
I am glad for you that the right breast cyst was benign.
Breast cysts are fluid-filled sacs inside the breast, which are usually not cancerous (benign).
Each of your breasts contains lobes of glandular tissue, arranged like petals of a daisy. The lobes are divided into smaller lobules that produce milk during pregnancy and breast-feeding. The supporting tissue that gives the breast its shape is made up of fatty tissue and fibrous connective tissue. Breast cysts develop as a result of fluid building up inside the glands in the breasts.
Anonymous, our breasts are not "connected" but because both are "made the same", it is possible for cysts to form in your left breast. That is why it is important to do self breast exams and have scheduled mammograms and ultrasound screening.
Mention the occasional left breast pain the next time you speak with your doctor.
