Though uncommon, young women (and men) can develop breast cancer. It is more common with certain family histories of breast cancer, and there are genetic-related breast cancers. See your MD for a breast exam, and ask how to do them yourself. Do once a month a week after your period. If you have a lump now, have it checked out. Many benign lumps exist, but you don't want to miss an early cancer!

If you have a strong family history of it, or if you have found a breast lump, you should seek medical advice, because early stages may be curable.
