Cysts & arm numbness

I was wondering if one or more of my multiple breast cysts could be pushing on an artery or vein and causing me to have numbness down the underside of my left arm into my palm, ring & pinky fingers? I called my breast Dr. but was told to go see my family Dr. which I will do day after tomorrow. Thanks!

If you are having numbness it would be due to some pressure on a nerve and not a blood vessel. I would think that your GP would be the proper place to start to investigate this problem. I doubt that it could be related in any way to breast cysts.    Regards ....
