Tenderness can defined as some degree of pain by pressing tenderly on the breast all around the breast.
Also at age 17 your breast is probably still growing. Among other things your bra may be too tight, you may have inadvertently caused a contusion to the breast , you may be developing a cyst and several other things including pregnancy Please see your primary care doc NOW! or a GYN specialist.
