    Hi - Yes, I'd get it checked out. Not because I'd be worried about cancer - it would be incredibly unusual for someone your age to have cancer; nearly impossible, in fact. But a tender lump on your chest could signal an infection, an abscess, or something else that needs to be taken care of. Especially if it seems to be growing, as you say. So best to have your mom or dad call the doctor, OK? Or see the school nurse, if that's an option. Good luck - PJH
