Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
As a rule cysts can not be visualised in the routine Xrays.
Breasts have mostly breast lumps and not the cysts and at times they can be malignant also.
most suitable thing to do is a local examination by a surgeon and evaluate them with Mammography, a special type of breast scan which is more informative.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!

Thanks for you input. I am getting it checked out by my doctor in november but I have to take a physical to keep my job. So, just wanted to check if it will be visible or not. Thanks again.

Welcome back.
You should get it evaluated whenever possible at the earliest.
Xray would not show it on the findings so you can be care free about that issue.
Wish you a good luck and a pink of health ahead.
