At 18 lost thing to : Worry , is the breast cancer , very very rare , for a cancer age is no exception , if at all develop will appear as painless lump in the breast. At 18 if you are afraid of breast cancer must speak to your doctor, in some anxious people, with phobias may need professional help & counseling.

At age 18 this is a remote possibility only. Would not spend time on such negative thought. However, for your calm / reassurance go visit a gynecologist....

Yes: It is very rare to have breast cancer before the age of 30. The most common symptom is a painless breast lump that one can feel. Lumps can also be seen by mammogram.

Breast lump, etc. : The most common sign/symptom is the presence of a lump in the breast. Other symptoms include nipple discharge, nipple inversion, skin indentation, and breast pain. Nevertheless, the majority of people diagnosed with breast cancer have no symptoms whatsoever. The best way to diagnose breast cancer early is to have routine screening mammograms beginning at age 40.
