First let me state: I am 12. I was about to get in the shower and saw one of my breast was bigger than the other, so I felt it as I felt a lump. Is it even possible for me to get cancer? If so- what should I do?

    It is scary to find a lump'. How brave of you to seek help! Most likely the lump is not cancer. It is common to have one breast larger than the other. However, please share this with your mom or woman you trust. For peace of mind , it is best to get it checked out by a doctor. Please keep us posted. We care about you!

      Hi ! I don't think that this is cancer. But since you have been really worried about it, and because you say there is a lot of cancer in your family, it would be best to have a check up. Just to be safe, and to put your mind at ease. I hope that you are able to talk to your mom or other lady, like grandmother, aunt, sister about this. See if you can go to your doctor, and be sure to mention your lump. That way you won't have to worry about it any more !

    Go to talk to your Mom. There are lots of little lumpy things that are not even related to cancer.

    Breasts are never exactly the same. Please talk to some one who will listen to your concerns. I am so glad that at your age you are aware of breast health. Early detection is our greastest chance for survival but 12 is really early to worry about cancer. Always be aware but please don't be scared.

      Ellie never be afraid to ask any question. If there is a lot of cancer in your family you are 100% right asking questions and doing examines that will keep you healthy for a very long time.

    Talk with your mother or some other close female adult that can help you sort out things. It would be best too to have a doctor look at it. No one, even adults have breasts that are exactly the same size. Please take care and it sounds like you are wise in taking notice in your body.
