Breast Lump?

Hello, I am 13 (14 in March) and a few weeks ago, I was sore on the bottom part of my left breast. I quit wearing a bra for a couple weeks thinking that was what it was and the pain did eventually go away. But now I just noticed that right around that area I found a lump. It is fairly large I guess and it doesn't really hurt more than normal, maybe some, but the lump, while it is still part of my breast area, extends down farther on my chest so that if I raise my arms I can see it. I've checked the other one out and found nothing too similar in that area, but I did also notice more lumps that are probably just cysts or a fibro-whatevers because I think my period is due sometime soon.

But the lump, I've noticed for a week or two (or three-I really can't remember) and I don't know if it was there earlier or something but I should have noticed it (or not... I'm not the most observant person). The lump is not hard, but not smooth... it feels like it is made of other things or something... I don't know. Wow, I don't know much, do I?  :(  But it moves around, just not as much as the other lumps I've felt before.

I'm scared that it is cancer. My mom has cancer (NOT BREAST CANCER), and she said it is not genetic, but I'm worried, thats all. I've become sort of a hypochondriac since my mom has been ill. Could I just be growing or something? Please help.

Thank you in advance. =)

If you have been  very sick  lately it could be a swollen lymph node.  But to be safe, i would go to the doctor.  When it comes to lumps in the breasts, you shouldn't take risks.  But you're young, you said 13? I've personally never heard of a 13 year old having breast cancer, but to be safe, i would talk to your mom and get a doctors appointment.  Good Luck :)
