Almost never: This is extremely rare but it's been reported.

Breast Cancer: Although breast cancer is rare in teens any breast pain, breast lumps, nipple discharge or other concerns should be reported to your doctor who can decide if any diagnostic tests such as mammogram, ultrasound or biopsy are indicated.
