I'm thirteen And have multiple lumps in each breast. I've had them for at least two years and I ignored them thinking they would just go away eventually. They really hurt if I touch them btw. I don't want to tell my mum unless I absolutely need to.
I want to get rid of them but knowing what they are is more important to me right now.

Hello,The cause of breast masses in adolescent group are mostly benign in origin.Gynecomastia,cyst,fibroadenomas,galactocele,infection and duct ectasias.Most if not all these can be solved with ease and that is a good reason to tell your mother and doctor.Breast malignancies are extremely uncommon in your age group,so take heart!But that is no reason to be complacent.OK?
