Yes: By not having fully developed breasts, do you mean, pre-pubertal? Or do you mean smaller breasts? Breast cancer is dependent on many factors, many of which we know, and may of which we don't. Yes, it is possible in smaller breasted women, and is also possible in men.

Could be normal: Periods can be irregular in your teenage years soon after first starting. However, there are also certain conditions that can cause irregular or infrequent menses, such as PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), stress, or other things. If you are concerned, a visit to your ob/gyn or PCP is recommended for further evaluation.

See your dentist: If this is a recurring problem, you may be grinding your teeth at night. If this is new, there may be a gum or tooth problem in the affected area.
