Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. It appears that you are suffering from fibrocystic disease of the breast, which is a benign condition in which you get multiple lumps and cysts in both the breasts along with pain and occasionally discharge. You should follow-up regularly with your doctor and this is not an indication for an MRI.
A regular USG (6monthly) and clinical examination is sufficient follow-up.
