Im 16 Years Old & Found A Lump In My Breast And Have An Inverted Nipple?!

Im only 16 years old and recently found a lump in my breast. it is very sore and seems to be gettin slightly bigger. another thing i noticed was that my nipple is inverted? but only in one breast? im a bit embarrest to go to the doctors and wondered if you could give me any advice?

Answer

Sophie, breast cancer at 16 is very, very, VERY VERY unusual,so statistics are on your side for sure. That said, any changes in your breast (not related to your period - i.e., the changes come and go in synch with your period) should be looked at by a doctor. So try not to be embarrassed; taking care of yourself - ALL of yourself, including your breasts - is simply being amature, responsible woman. Give the doc a call, so you can set your mind at ease, OK? -PJH
