Your Bod

I have had lumps in my breast since I was about 9

Believe it or not, breasts are full of lumps and bumps that are perfectly normal—particularly when you’re developing. You can especially feel them if you’re thin or small-chested. If both breasts feel the same, there is probably nothing wrong. If you feel a lump that is new or unusual and does not go away after your next period, then see your doctor. From the time a girl begins to menstruate, her breasts undergo regular changes each month. Extra fluid can collect around the breasts during your period, making them feel bumpy. These changes and lumps are usually harmless. Although it is extremely unlikely that someone your age would get breast cancer, lumps and other changes in your breasts should be checked by a doctor just to be sure.
