breast cysts and pregnancy

Hi everyone
I just had a breast examination and I have cysts in my left breast and the doctor will send me to an ultrasound scan. I’m 25 and I am 5 weeks pregnant. I’m terribly worried if there is any side effect for my baby and if the growth of hormones level during pregnancy will increase the risk of breast cancer. …:frowning: can anyone says sth to me about my concerns because I’m very worried. …thanks
