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 in teens. Rest double-assured because you’re obviously knowledgeable about your bod, and that will keep you abreast (pardon the pun) of your health issues.

What you’re most likely feeling are some of the many small glands that are naturally in your breast tissue, explains Dr. Elizabeth G. Stewart, gynecologist and author of The V Book. But just one lump is probably a harmless cyst from a breast duct that’s temporarily plugged with fluid. This usually goes away on its own.

Just to be safe, ask your doctor to check it out.
