    My 10 year old daughter has sore, itchy, inverted nipples. Her right nipple is red and slightly swollen. She is also having discharge from her right nipple. Can a 10 year old get breast cancer?

    Hi - I think, historically, there may have been a girl as young as 10 who's had breast cancer, but the youngest American girl with breast cancer is 11 years old - so it's highly unlikely. Also, the fact that some of these symptoms are in both breasts makes it even more unlikely. It sounds like she may be experiencing some early symptoms of puberty. I'd suggest you take her to her pediatrician to find out what might be causing the inversion, pain, and discharge, and see what s/he suggests to treat it. In the meantime - please don't worry about cancer. I think we can safely say it's not an issue for her right now. Take care- PJH

    Go to a health store a purches some oil of oregano.  You can get this a the vitimine shoppe near you.  Also go to a heal food store a purches Perrins Cream Complete or go on line you can find it there.  It sound like your little girl has parasites.  This can cause her symptoms.  And ask the person at the Health food store to sugest a good parsitic cleanse for the age of your daughter....I hope this helps...
