Please get an Ultrasound of the Breast

Detailed Answer:
Hello ad welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your description, it is clear that there was a Cyst in the Breast. We term it as Fibrocystic disease of the Breast.
In my 20 years of experience, I have not come across a case of Ruptured breast cyst. It is very rare.
I prefer an Ultrasound of the Breast which gives accurate description of the Cyst.
Nothing to worry.
Please consult your doctor and proceed further.

Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions,I will clarify further.
Wish you good health
Regards
