What is a separated cyst in the breast?

I was told I have a separated cyst in my breast.

Please check with your doctor and confirm your diagnosis. Perhaps you misunderstood; could you have been told it is a "septated" cyst? This is usually a fluid-filled cyst with two or more chambers, which are aeparated by a septum or wall.

You probably have what is called a septated cyst. These are usually benign but generally require further testing, such as aspiration or needle guided biopsy.

A separated cyst in the breast may be a normal muscle thickening or a normal cyst. But beware of tumorous cysts also. Avoid your breasts during sex.

It is an abnormal growth that develops very fast and that is in its very first stage of reproduction. A separated cyst can lead to breast cancer and therefore one should visit a cancer specialist or oncologist as early as possible before it spreads to a wider area in the breast.


Answer by  dryuha (735)

A separated cyst is a fluid filled sac. It is a benign condition and not a cancer.It is usually identified after an ultrasound scan.It usually do not cause any troubling symptoms. However, if the cyst is getting bigger a surgery may be needed to remove it. However, it may reappear again after the surgery.

I cannot find anything about a separated cyst. I did find information on a septated cyst. This means that there is a divider in the cyst.
