Don't ever hesitate to come here to ask whatever concerns you may have. The waiting is always the worst but very necessary. The Dr. is 100% correct; imaging can indicate whether something is more likely than not to be a specific thing but NEVER diagnose with certainty. It's also dependant on the Radiologist and his or her experience. Take care and wait as patiently as possible .......

Cysts are hormone related and are not always painful ... that comes and goes with the level of hormones in the body. I don't quite understand why you would think that this cyst is related in any way to Breast Cancer. Although family history is a consideration it accounts for only a small amount of all Breast Cancers. Waiting for the appointment with the Surgeon isn't anything to be concerned about either .... it's all a process that can't be rushed and to answer your initial question; you can develop a cyst at any time.   Regards ....
