Hello im just 17 and for the past month ive had a lump in my breast. it went down slightly on the first day of my period but its swelled right up again 2 days after that day. its painful and sort of hard.

im finding it hard to tell anybody as im embarassed and petrified of what it could be and about scars etc..

does anybody know what it could possibly be?

  • Hey sweetyI know how u feel - i also got a lump when i was about 16/17 & i was so scared, however it turned out to be a cyst that dissapeared in about 2 weeks. Just to be sure though, go to the doctor to check up - don't feel afraid or embarrassed because ur health is of more importance.The following sites might help u analyze the lump & possibly ease ur anxiety...http://www.emedicinehealth.com/breast_lumps_and_pain/article_em.htm http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/breast-lumps/BR00013 Hope it helps
