Need more info: Your symptoms can be as a result of many things. At your age it is quite uncommon for the cause to be cancer. It could be due to something simple like fluid retention or an ill fitting bra or hormone imbalance. You really should see your primary care physician for an exam to get an answer and ease your mind.
