My breasts are lumpy. Do I have cancer?

 
Whenever I read stuff about doing self breast exams they always say to make sure that there are no lumps, but when I feel my breasts they are always really lumpy. Do I have breast cancer or something?

 

Not to worry, babe, what you’re feeling in your breasts is probably nothing to worry about. Breast cancer is extremely rare in teens. The lumps you’re feeling are most likely related to your growth and development.

 

More than half of all women have breast lumps called fibroadenomas. These are small, noncancerous cysts that tend to change in size according to your period. If you have them, they’re usually easier to feel just before your period.

 

Still worried? Don’t fret. Give your doctor a call and set up an appointment for a routine examination. If your breasts start to feel different between exams, or you’ve noticed something new, getting checked out is a good precaution.
