How to treat a cyst in the sine

The presence of a cyst in the breast usually does not require treatment, because in the majority of cases, it is a benign alteration that does not affect the health of the woman. However, it is common for the gynecologist to choose to follow up with the woman to observe if the cyst grows or produces any type of symptom.

In case the cyst increases in size or any other alteration, the doctor could investigate the malignancy and could request an aspiration of the cyst, with the purpose of evaluating the sample of liquid in the laboratory to confirm the presence of cancer cells. See what the risk is that the breast cancer converts to breast cancer.

How the follow-up is carried out

After identifying the presence of a cyst in the sine, it is common for the gynecologist to indicate several control consultations and the performance of mammography and ultrasound exams every 6 or 12 months. These exams allow you to evaluate whether changes take place over time, especially in size, shape, density or if any associated symptoms have arisen.

When it is necessary to carry out the aspiration

The aspiration is a relatively simple procedure in which the doctor inserts a needle through the skin until the quiste, once there, he aspirates the liquid. This is generally carried out when a malignant neoplasm is suspected or when the cyst is causing some type of illness in the woman or causing the appearance of symptoms.

Depending on the characteristics of the aspirated fluid, additional questions may be required or not:

  • Liquid without blood and the cyst disappears: in general, no examination or additional treatment is required;
  • Liquid with blood and cyst that does not disappear: if you can suspect malignancy, so the doctor sends a sample of liquid to the laboratory.
  • No liquid comes out: The doctor can order more precautions or a biopsy of the solid part of the cyst to evaluate the risk of cancer.

After the aspiration, the doctor may recommend that the woman use analgesics to reduce pain and recommend rest for approximately 2 days.
