The changes that puberty brings can be scary for any young person. Young women develop breasts for the first time and may be unaccustomed to their look and feel. Some may worry about breast cancer.
Early breast development often begins as a lump under the nipple, which may compound worries a young teen may have about breast cancer. These breast buds may also be sensitive, triggering fears that something is wrong.
Parents and Breast Cancer Doctor should reassure teenagers about normal breast growth, since developing breasts will be a new experience and can be unnerving.
