I feel lumps in my breasts. Do I have breast cancer?

I’m 13, and I feel lumps in my breasts. Do I have breast cancer? Rest assured that you’re probably very healthy—breast cancer almost never occurs...

I think i have breast cancer when i wear my bras they hurt. And when i take them off they hurt painfully. Do i?


Hey girl! I'm not a doc, so I can't say for sure, but it's unlikely that your boobs would only hurt when you had a bra on and right after you took them off.  It's more likely that your bras are too small or that your boobs are growing and that's what's causing the tenderness.  xoxo

Ok,so,I noticed this zit on my chest today.When I moved my finger on it,there was a bump.And the bump was close to my left boob.Ny teacher said that if there is a bump and it feels like a marble,the it's breast cancer.But,there is no lump or anything.Just that zit.What could it possibly be?


Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions Smile To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body. Trust your instincts and talk to your doc!

The other day i noticed i had kinda scabbing on my nipples and its not going away !! Frown
i dont wanna go to the doctors or tell my mum !!! help me ! is it just gonna go away ?


Hey girl, sometimes this happens if you go tanning in a tanning bed. If that's not the case, I would consider talking to your mom about it. It's okay, she's a girl too!

I am 13 and "down there" there is an odor. It's not itchy... I don't know what to do about it. Is there anything wrong with me and is it a yeast infection?

Hey girlie! Having a slight odor is totally normal. If you're worried it might be something more, though, I would definitely check with a doctor.

I'm scared. So I was sitting in the floor doing homework & I went to move my shorts, when I did I felt my finger hit something hard... I felt it again & like an inch from my vaginal opening there is this bump on the right side. Idk what it is, but it's tender to touch. I was wondering if it had anything to do with when I went to the park, I landed on the slide really hard & my side was sore for a few days. Idk what it is but I'm scared please help! I can't tell my mom



Hey girl. Sounds to me like its just a bump from when you fell but if it doesn't go away in a few days you really shouldn't be shy to tell your mom or school nurse or any other trusted adult, just in case its something that needs to be checked out its best to catch it soon!

I thought I had breast cancer too, but it turns out that my bra was to small. Thank goodness! I am pretty sure that you are fine. Smile

Is it bad to wear a bra to bed? My mom nags me all the time because I can't stand not wearing a bra to bed. I have conceided to wearing a sports bra, but I just wanted to know if it's a problem.


Hey girly, It can get a bit uncomfortable and I'm sure its good to let the girls breathe from time to time, but as far as I know it doesn't do any damage to wear a bra at night- sort of like wearing socks to bed. There's no harm but your feet may want to breathe a little =) Do what's comfy for you. xoxo

Thank you! This is actually just in time cuz my friend was worried about the exact same thing and it was getting her all worked up for the past like 3 days!! Now i can make her feel a lot better!! So glad this is nothing!

@js1011 -- it isn't as embarassing as you think. Just keep calm and ask your mom. Repeat: keep calm and ask your mom. See, it even has the keep calm trend thing!

MOD MOD MOD I have had my period ever since I was in sixth grade I am now in ninth and I have never had any symptoms along with it. For example cramping, headaches, being moody. So I was wondering will I always be symptom free?

Hey girl, there's nothing wrong with you! You're just EXTREMELY lucky (EMBRACE it!) You may always be or you may not — it's hard to say, but enjoy those great periods while you've got them. The rest of us are totes jealous.

I've had a horrible headache on and off for the past two's like my whole head is aching, you can't really pinpoint it. I just realized that I'm due for my period in a day...could my headaches be related to that? Because, I'm not sick in any other way..but I rarely get headaches so just wondering what's going on....thanks!!


Hey maggie183, yep that's probably what it is. Sometimes new symptoms start occurring with out periods. No worries girl. Xoxo

I can't wear bras. I am not big enough! It's so frusterating because almost ALL of my friends (except 1) wear them and like talk about it all. the. time... Frown


That's okay girl. For one you're still growing and maturing. Some girls don't finish developing until their early-mid 20s. I know a girl who didn't get a chest until her sophmore year of college. And even if you don't get big boobs or any, it doesn't make you less pretty. There are lots of pretty women with small chests. Look at Kate Hudson, Aaliyah, Zoe Saldana, Jlo and Charlize Thereon. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Hey girl! It's totally possible for you to have a cyst on your leg. There are different places you can have cysts and they can be found on your legs, too.

Ok so ive had a lump in my breast for about 3 weeks now and i really want to tell my mom but i dont know how. Please help!!!!!!

Hey babe, most of the lumps are just fat or other things that are nothing to worry about. But it is always best to get these things checked out by a doc, just to be safe but I'm sure you're fine!

is there anyway to maske your boobs grow quicker? because my boobs barely fit into a 32A bra and i want bigger boobs. HELP!


Unfortunately there's no way to make your boobs grow faster, but just give it some time! Your body is still growing, and your boobs are most likely not done yet either.

I have lumps on my boobs that are sore but they've been like that for a while is there something wrong with me?

by Totally_Animalz on 6/19/2009 10:22:25 AM


OK, In our health class we went over checking for cancer in teens for both us and guys. She said checking for lumps is very important, not because a lot of us teens get breast cancer but because she said it will get us in the habit of doing it when we get older.

She did say that with guys it is the opposite with them, that they have can start getting cancer in their boy parts when they are in their teens so it is best for us and them to check when we take a warm shower when everything is kind of loose.

Thank goodness for us most of the time the lumps we feel are not a problem but I did hear about a teen getting breast cancer so it can happen.

Wear a sports bra that keeps your breasts in and with shirts, wear extra tanks to keep them in..

what does OBGYN mean??

Hey girl,

OB/GYN stands for obstetrician/gynecologist. An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in delivering babies, and a gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in treating issues with female reproductive organs. Many doctors specialize in both, which makes them OB/GYNs.

How do you know if you have breast cancer?


Hey babes,  Generally you go for tests around your 20's and docs teach you how to do self examinations.  If you would like more info check in with you doc.  Xo Lori
