Thanks for posting the query.

It is very important to know the type and pathology of the cyst.

If you put implants, there is always a chance of infection. You should get a mammography and a fine needle aspiration biopsy done.

If all your reports are normal, nothing to worry about. However, there is a chance of infection if breasts implants are put in, along with the cyst.

There may be a chance of rupture/hemorrhage depending on the type of cyst.

It would be better if you consult with the plastic surgeon if you know what type of cyst it is.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available for the follow up queries if any.
