I have had this pain before about a year ago, had all kinds of test done; ekg , stress, nerves, mammogram etc. The mammogram to did find a benign cyst but was told it should not be a problem.

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. The pain you are describing cannot be attributed to the cyst in your breast but because it has been one year, it is prudent to get a repeat mammogram done to assess the cyst.
The pain which you have described could be due to some muscular or back problem and you can have it evaluated after getting a mammogram done.

Hoping for the best.
