24 year girl I have lump in my left axilla n pain on touch on right side of breast ia dr palpitaed me and suggested amoxiclave but I ve suspect cancer?

Agree with Dr.: Breast metastases in the axilla are seldom painful or tender. You're young for breast cancer though no one's immune. The node may have been doing its job catching bacteria. If by any chance you own a kitten, think of cat-scratch fever and consider tetracycline. If it's not changed in two weeks, consider having it needled for diagnosis. ...Read more

It can be...: Without any other symptoms or information, this is likely normal. Body fat distribution (not just total mass) is determined by a very complex interplay between hormones that are very actively changing before, during and after puberty. So as the body changes/matures, the body fat (aka adipose) distribution may also change. If you're worried, though, go see your doctor, they can help. ...Read more

They may be slightly tender in the beginning but should never be red or drain. If so a visit is needed. ...Read more

Maybe normal for you: Do you have regular menstrual periods? Is your weight normal for your height? If so, your body may be developing in the right way for you. There are all different sizes of women, including breast size.
It is important to learn to accept your body, yourself. It doesn't matter what other people are- just that you are *you*. If you are concerned, check with your doctor. ...Read more

My 6 year old growing breast is that normal?

My 6 year old growing breast is that normal?

Premature Thelarche: Breast bud development before the age of 8 yrs is considered premature. If it is an isolated finding (no other secondary sexual characteristics) then it is considered "benign" and no other work-up is required. If there are other findings then it is often consistent with "precocious puberty" and further work-up is necessary. Schedule a visit with your child's pediatrician for further evaluation. ...Read more

Most breast lumps: Are not dangerous, particularly at your age. If you are using hormonal birth control, that often causes tender lumps called fibroadenomas. A fibroadenoma is NOT breast cancer, but does increase the risk of breast cancer. There are many other reasons for breast lumps. It isn't possible to know what your lump is without an exam by your doctor and perhaps some testing. ...Read more

Is it safe for a 13 year old girl to use trima breast reduction pills?

No, not safe: Breast reduction pills are not recommended. If you are concerned about this young girl's breast size, then you should consult a breast specialist to make sure there is not an abnormality causing the enlargement. If surgery is of interest, I would recommend waiting until at least 21. The breasts are still growing and changing at this age. ...Read more
