11 yr old has long lump in breast. What is it? Very worried.

Don't worry!: Don't worry! Most of these lumps in adolescents are benign, and worrying will only make your situation worse! Take your daughter to her pediatrician to be sure. She may be embarrassed to have a breast exam, but you can explain that as we get older this is a normal part of an annual physical. If she hasn't seen her pediatrician in over a year it is a good time to schedule a well check anyway. ...Read more
