cysts in breasts
i am 47 and had my first mammogram and ultrasound-i have many small cysts in both breasts, i was told not to be concerned. but what causes them and can they become malignant?

is it possible that wearing a push-up bra can be unhealthy for breast tissue or are cysts caused by other factors?

ps-i am now menopausal.

Surgeons deal with breast problems, not gynaecologists, so you would need to see a surgeon for advice.
