Cyst Aspiration

Cysts are fluid collections in the breast that are very common and are almost always completely benign.


The cyst is identified with ultrasound. Occasionally, when cysts look unusual on ultrasound or when they are painful, a doctor will recommend aspiration. The breast is numbed with local anesthetic, and a small needle (about the same size as that used to draw blood) is used to drain the fluid. The procedure takes five to ten minutes and is usually painless. The patient goes home immediately following the procedure and may resume all of her normal activities.
