Breast lumps/cysts near chest wall

I went for a mammogram and ultrasound because I found 2 lumps in my left breast.  The radiologist said that they were cysts.  Also, a lump showed up on the mammogram for my right breast.  You could not feel it but he said that it was on my chest wall and that it was probably benign.  How do I know for sure that it is "benign"?  Should I have that drained if just a cyst because it is so deep?  Can you get cysts on your chest wall?  Also, if just a cyst and I don't drain it, can it turn cancerous?  Thanks.
