I used to get gigantic, very painful cysts seemingly overnight. I have fibrocystic breasts, which make them more conducive to cysts. I would get one or two huge cysts a year and freak out every time, even though I always knew they were probably cysts. I would always end up having them aspirated, because of the incredible discomfort. With me, stress brought them on. I am fairly small breasted, which seemed to make it all the more painful. Menopause helped significantly with this issue. Best of luck to you. Advil helped me when I got my huge cysts, but when they get that big aspiration by the doctor was the only thing that made me feel better.
