Breast cancer at 14. Is it possible?

Unlikely. At 14, the most common breast tumor would be a juvenile (giant) fibroadenoma. This is a rapidly growing benign tumor which can get pretty large. Occasionally, adolescents can also get phyllodes tumors, even though they are unusual. If you have concerns about the diagnosis please get a second opinion.
Unlikely. In over 20 years of practice I have never seen a 14 year old with breast cancer. Please see this graph from komen.org.
