    Hi Sweetie, I am not a doctor, but I can tell you that you would be too YOUNG to have breast cancer, sounds to me like you have hormonal things going on, and that your breasts are growing. Stay away from processed foods, chemicals and exercise. Get your YEARLY check ups.. and .. Trust in the Lord... XO

      You are unfortunately right. It's not the typical but if it's you you'd want to respond and investigate. Let's hope it's just usual teenage stuff.

    Keep track of when they hurt and symptoms if still hurting etc go to your dr. If you are really scared go now( soon). It will make you feel better.

    Have you told your mother about your concerns? I don't know how old you have to be to be tested for the gene but at your age they won't do a mammogram, if anything an Ultrasound study.

      This is true. Even at 21 years old they opt for ultra sound usually.

    My grandma also had breast cancer so I could have the gene for it, and that is kinda stressing me out. Should get tested for the gene and get a mammogram done?
