Hi i have a lumpy thing in my upper left breast and I am so worried i just found it on wed and sat my breasts have been feeling tender. I have been checking on the lump everyday to find out what it really is. It doesnt feel like a peanut its much softer but i checked on my right breast and there is no lump simmilar to the one on the left. I told my mom who is a nurse and she examined it and she said its normal but i dont know because im still worried it might be cancer. Im 17 years old and im beyond scared! I am going to the doctor next week maybe but i cant wait ! Im just so worried! Please help me! And i did move it around and it seems like it is movable but its hard to tell because i lose it and have to find it again.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and it is a great thing that you are conscious about your body as a teenager. It is highly unlikely that at your age, this is any kind of cancer but following up with a physician who can examine you - is your best option. Women get breast calcifications from time to time and this may be your case but let your physician certainly check as this will weigh heavily on your family history.

Good luck,
