Caption: Mammogram of a female breast showing a cyst, which appears as the white, roughly pear-shaped area towards the top of the breast. The nipple is to the right. Mammography is a special X-ray technique that is used to visualize soft tissues of the breast as a means of screening women for breast cancer. Fibrocystic breast disease is common in mature, pre-menopausal women. The formation of cysts (fluid-filled sacs) & increase in fibrous tissue (fibrosis) are the results of distortion & overgrowth of tissues in the breast.
