My first question is "what does you Mother think about this?" Perhaps she could make an appointment for you with a Surgeon to get his/her opinion on having it removed. I'm not sure that it would go away with exercise but that might be possible. Why not try that ... you know if you did have it removed you would have some type of scar to deal with and that might be worse than what you have now. It wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion though. At 16 you aren't finished growing yet ... things may change you know.  Take care .... and don't worry about it being cancer.

I have the exact same problem. I gained weight when I was like 13 and from one day to another I noticed they were there on both sides. I never really did anything to make them go away until now. I'm now 25 and Ive had two kids. I started exercising and lost 10 lbs. I noticed that they are getting smaller. My goal is another 25 lbs and hopefully that will get rid of them for good.  I do suggest u do something about them now... Im not really sure if mine will ever go back to normal but I do wish I had done something sooner.... Ive always had large breasts too so I think that might be the cause too... Ive recently brought them from DD to D.... Good luck!!
