breast simple cyst

I have  a cluster of six small cysts varying in size from 2 mm in diameter up to 6 mm in diameter. they are grouped in the upper-outer quadrant region between 1-3 o'clock. Do you guys think I should get them aspirated? They don't physically bother me, but emotionally-I wondered it they truely are cysts with fluid and not cancer.

If you know that these are cysts you have evidently had some investigative procedure (Ultrasound ??) that defined them as such. If they aren't causing you any particular problem I see no reason to do anything about them. Cysts do not become cancer but they can be removed if they are causing unusual pain or discomfort. Others may develop though if you are suseptible to Cystic Breast Condition. The sizes you describe are quite small; the largest less than 1/4 in.   Regards ....

Thank you for your thoughts-your right!  I guess I worry because I have been on Estrogen ( Estradiol 1 mg) for 17 years, due to a hysterecomy when I was 32 yrs. old. I am considering to stop taking them, because at age 49, maybe I don't really need the pills anymore... Thanks for your time in writing to me...=) Happy Holidays!
