Should get checked: It is unlikely, but not impossible to have breast cancer at 18. If you have a family history of breast cancer or breast cancer has been diagnosed in a premenopausal family member, it can develop in younger generations of the same family. An ultrasound +/- biopsy can alleviate your concern.
