My cousin masterbated with a sex toy that she was not sure had sperm on it or not is it possible she is pregnant she is 12 years old and I'm worried?
Toys & Masturbation: The answer would be no if I knew how old the semen was on the toy. If your cousin has not started having periods then there would be another reason that she could not be pregnant. I guess, as a physician, I would want to know more. If the semen was dry and old there is less likelihood that it was viable. Hope that helps.

< 1 in a Million: Breast cancer is very rare in women under 30 and increases in incidence the older you get. The statistical probabibility of having breast cancer at 12 is less than the probability of winning a million dollars in the lottery. A breast lump in a 12-yr old girl is most likely a benign fibroadenoma, which can be confirmed by ultrasound +/- biopsy.
Planning: Children can learn to overcome fear of needles. Teaching relaxing techniques and practicing at home with pretend needles can help the child master the relaxation needed. Ask you doctor for a prescription for topical numbing cream- it has to be applied 1 hour ahead of time. Patient staff who do not rush also help. Your child-life specialist at your local children's hospital can give ideas too.See 1 more doctor answer

Rare if ever: The more common issue at 12 in either males (50%) or females (all) is the appearance of nipple or breast tissue, often on one side weeks or months before the other. Spongy tissue just below the nipple separates this normal event from abnormal masses than appear at other locations. In males this may disappear over 6m to a year while in females further progression of breast development occurs.See 2 more doctor answers
Not likely at all: It would be very rare to get pregnant naturally or with fertility help at that age. Also if you did get pregnant more than 60% of the pregnancies would result in miscarriages. The really only way to achieve pregnancy successfully at that age is with a donor egg. Please don't believe the women getting pregnant without donor over the age of 43.See 1 more doctor answer

So extremely rare: I am not going to say "never", but the incidence is close to that. Anytime there is breast tissue present, there is a theoretical risk of breast cancer. However, lumpy breast tissue is an early adolescent is so much likely to be something else - most commonly fibrous breast tissue. If there is extreme worry a simple ultrasound could set mind at ease, but it is probably overdoing it!See 1 more doctor answer
Periods?: As long as you have regular menses - most likely having also regullar ovulations. As long as this is happening you can get pregnat naturaly. It is not as common but it can happen.

Than no more worry about pregnancy. See your MD
No: Rubbing against the opposite sex's genitalia through clothes won't get her pregnant. This is the time for exploration and curiousity.
