Okay: What you described is not a cause for concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Apply ICE Packs and try WARM packs and ALTERNATE (see which helps more!) Take IBUPOROFEN 400 mgm every 6 hours and if the pain continues after a few days of above ...see your PCP (Primary Care Provider) for possible xrays Z ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I have soreness on my left breast and went to a doctor yesterday and at first he said he thought he felt firmness and then he saw a bruise.

Needs Further Tests: IF you have a "new" breast tenderness and your doctor "felt" something, you should have further testing. This would likely include a mammogram and possibly breast ultrasound. If there was a trauma to the breast, it could leave a bruise and cause some firmness in the deeper tissues. Although that can be normal, I would recommend follow-up. ...Read more
