Hello My 11 year old daughter has noticed a lump in her breast that is right next to the side of the aerola. I can feel it and it feels small and is within the tissue. She had a pretty sharp contusion to that same breast a couple of days before and that is when she felt the lump. I am concerned that it may have been there already and only noticed because of hitting it. I am an overly anxious parent and have an appointment with her pediatrician. Any other comments out there that could help calm my fears.
Dear luvh20, Given your daughter’s age it would be unusual that this lump would be cancerous, and may very well be because of the injury. However, having it checked by her pediatrician to ease your mind is fine.
I am trying to remember how old you are when you start to develop? I say this because when my oldest daughter started to develop she also had a lump similar to what you describe. I panicked as I'm a bc survivor and took her to the pediatrician. They told me it was a node and it was not uncommon for girls to start to develop unevenly like that. Sure enough it was the beginning and the "lump" went away. We laughed about it later.
