A lump appears beneath/in* the areola

I m only 15...I felt a lump in my left areola and it was quite fixed and hard..Compared to few days ago,it was less painful...Was it possible to be breast cancer?I dont have any discharge from my breast..But i just have the lump there ><

Hi again.
It would be hard to tell whether the lump under your nipple is benign (probable secondary to fibrosis if there was a previous infection) or malignant without the benefit of a good physical examination and diagnostic evaluation.
I highly encourage you to see your doctor for evaluation.
Take care.

Hi.
How are you doing?
The abscess may not be secondary to breastfeeding.  Inflammation of the areolar gland can produce abscess.  This may be brought about by a break in the skin/areola, producing a superimposed infection and thus abscess formation.   If there is an abscess, incision and drainage must be done and the specimen is sent to the pathologist for evaluation.
Good luck.

Hi.
According to the Surveillance, Epidmiology, and End Results (SEER) data, there was no breast cancer diagnosed under the age 20 years from 2001-2005.  The median age at diagnosis was 61 years of age.
The tender lump in your areola could be a localized infection like an abscess of the areolar gland.
Please consult your doctor for proper evaluation.
Take care.
