In brief: Other features

Any female with a true breast bud before 8y would be considered abnormal.
One important distinction is whether it is a true bud, or a bit of fluffy overhang in a kid carrying a few extra pounds.A breast bud will be directly beneath the nipple & have a distinct size & spongy feel that is different from soft fatty tissue.Add a breast nodule to rapid growth or pubic hair & its time to see your dr.
