Answer

The mammogram should be able to see all the areas you are concerned about. An ultrasound will be able to distinguish between a solid lump and a cyst. When you go in for the mammogram, be sure to point out all the places that concern you. Pay attention to whether they change over the course of your menstrual cycle. If they change in size and shape, they are more likely to be cysts, which are annoying, but harmless.

It is normal to be concerned about medical tests and breast lumps, but try to stay busy and keep your mind on other things. Most of the time breast lumps check out to be non-cancerous.
