See answer: Tough to answer over the computer. Fibro-cystic breast disease is very common in young breasts, and is probably what you are feeling. The best advice for you is too a dr. And get a breast exam, and have the dr. Explain what is normal specifically to your breasts, and then when you perform an exam on yourself at least monthly, and notice any changes, you can alert the dr. Best wishes.
