Just a bruise likely: If the soreness and lump is in the part of the breast your nephew accidentally struck, it is almost certainly a bruise or even a hematoma(bleeding into breast). It should go away in a few weeks. If it doesn't go away, you should see your physician. Breast cancer if very rare but not unheard of at 16 years of age.
