Doctor can examine: A pre-pubertal girl with breast swelling can be examined by her primary care doctor such as her pediatrician. Breasts can have normal breast tissue that then gets inflamed due to playground trauma, such as running into something that hits the breast bud. Such a bud can then get swollen and painful. Also possible is infection so a doctor's exam is needed, usually an in-person exam.
