Is it possibility that i'm developing breast cancer since my dr. said i have cystic breasts?

Fibrocystic

Breast_cancer
breasts don't predispose to breast cancer. However, they can make the diagnosis more difficult because of the complexity of the breast tissue on mammography. Ultrasound of "lumps" will either show cysts or unremarkable glandular tissue. Sometimes MRI is used when there is a question. Also, biopsy may also be required if a palpable lump is clinically suspicious even when all other tests are normal.

Might somebody have breast cancer if her breasts are not fully developed?

Not sure..

Breast_cancer
if I understand your question correctly, but breast size has no bearing on who may get breast cancer. Have a yearly physical examination with your doctor, and if there is a breast lump or concern see your doctor soon.

How is breast cancer distinguished from lumpy breasts?

Some breast cancers can only be detected on mammogram/ultrasound/MRI. It is important for you to perform your own self exam (BSE) every month. Your goal is to get to know your "lumpiness" so you can detect something that feels different.

Dr. Eva Duckett answered:

Can pain in breasts mean i have breast cancer?

Not usually

Breast_cancer
Brian I am assuming you are male. Breast pain and lump in a male is usually a non cancerous condition called gynecomastia. It is a hormonal side effect of many medications in adult males but is seen during normal hormonal changes during puberty. You should be examined and a mammogram and/or sonogram may be needed to confirm that it is gynecomastia.
