OK, I'm 13 years old. When i was taking a shower like 2 or 3 hours ago, i felt a lump in my right breast. I AM TERRIFIED!!! i read online and im pretty sure its a fibroadenoma. (I can spell it, didn't say i could pronounce it). i read fibros could move,but this doesnt. plus, i'd be 18 b4 it went away on its own. Somebody please tell wat 2 do!

Dear Snowflake1216:  It is extremely rare for cancer to develop in a woman in her teens.  Lumps and bumps can be pretty common.  Since this is new, it makes sense to show it to your mom and have her make you a doctors appointment for evaluation.
