    I realised that my left breast has got one or two small lumps last year(and the year before). Recently (these few days) i can feel slight pain when i was checking the lumps. I even feel that when i was trying to wear my bra or when i have contact with it.

    I wonder if that's just somekinda common problem that most girls have or I've got BREAST CANCER? (my family has no history of Breast cancer)I'm 19 and i thought that slight pain might because of my breast still growing. I know i should visit GP but i thought i might share this in TSR as some ppl might experience this.

    Any advise GIRLS?

    Hardly anyone on here will have experienced this because the incidence of teenage breast cancer is so low.

    Why didn't you go to the docs when you first felt them? How about going along today and seeing if you can get an emergency appointment?

    My mum was diagnosed with it two years ago, and my friends mum had it last year... Get it sorted immediately and AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Both mum's are fine now

    I've experienced this for more than 1 year. I asked one of my best friend and she said she does experience this occationally. I've check on the internet about breast cancer and the position that the lump that i've got now is "normally not a cancer tumour" so i thought the lumps probably just appear because my breasts are growing (girls grow til their 20).

    They are probably just cysts but you need to see a doctor anyway. Cysts are fairly harmless but they can hurt in which case you may like to have them drained.

    In breast cyst aspiration, your doctor uses a small needle to drain fluid from a cyst.

    I thought the general rule was if they hurt then it's not anything like cancer. But a lump in the breast is always a worry so ditto at mangaroo...

    Get it sorted ASAP - make an appointment to see your GP NOW!

    Chances are that they're benign cysts, but there is a chance it's some thing more sinister...

    My sister in law developed breast cancer at 23 (no family history), and ended up losing the breast. She was not the youngest person on the mastectomy ward at the time either...
