  • I don't know how your abcess was done but I had cists inside my breasts that were asperated by the withdrawal of the fluid using a large suringe. That was about 25 years ago I was in my late 30's. I am now 65 and I get pain where those cists were. My new doctor told me just the other day that it is probably scare tissue... because neither The doctor or myself could feel any lumps....she said that even at my age I have small amounts of hormones being produced in my system this could be the reason I get these little twinges or downright aching ....I will of course be getting a mamograhm to be sure all is right....
