cluster of cysts

just had a biospy yesterday was told it was a cluster of cysts. want is a cluster and does it increase chances of cancer? Do they test each cyst?

Dear Katia, A cyst is a fluid filled structure.  I'm not sure from what was written above if the cluster was seen on a test such as an ultrasound.  Depending on the suspiciousness of the structures, would determine what would need to be biopsied.  Cysts do not increase the risk of breast cancer.
