Additional Details
I just moved to a new town and my parents are already stressed out I don't want to add any extra stress. Especially if I don't know that it's a problem yet.

Go to your doctor of course. At 17, you should be able to make an appointment with out your parents but you probably should tell them anyway. Stressed out or not, they need to know. I know I would be heartbroken if my daughter had cancer and she didn't tell me. No matter how stressful life gets parents should always be there for their kids.

Unfortunately, the early stages of breast cancer may not have any symptoms. This is why it is important to follow screening recommendations. As a tumor grows in size, it can produce a variety of symptoms including:

lump or thickening in the breast or underarm
change in size or shape of the breast
nipple discharge or nipple turning inward
redness or scaling of the skin or nipple
ridges or pitting of the breast skin
If you experience these symptoms, it doesn't necessarily mean you have breast cancer, but you need to be examined by a doctor.

If you have bloody bloody or funny colored discharge, is a sign. Otherwise I think the only other way to tell is a mammogram

Consult a doctor asap

Hope you don't have it.

OMG girl you tell your mom now. You do not need to be the one stressed out either. You may be worrying for no reason. The best way is to see a doctor and see one NOW. Go to your parents this minute and tell them.

Breast cancer most often involves glandular breast cells in the ducts or lobules. Most patients present with an asymptomatic lump discovered during examination or screening mammography. Diagnosis is confirmed by biopsy. Treatment usually includes surgical excision, often with radiation therapy and adjuvant systemic therapy.
Please see the web pages for more details on Breast cancer.

Go see your doctor.

You need to go to your doctor and get it checked out. Most likely it's nothing. Just a cyst.

Many teenage girls get frequent cysts in their breasts due to hormone changes. There is even something called Fibrocystic Breast Disease which is harmless, but causes some women to get frequent cysts.


It could be a cyst, which is nothing serious. If breast cancer is in your family or not, it is something you should have checked right away. Call your doctor or ob/gyn and tell them what is going on. They may see you right away. Try to relax until you know what it is, worry will solve nothing. Good luck

At your age it is very unlikely indeed to be breast cancer and some of the possible explanations have been given in answers already. Please make an appointment and talk it over with a doctor to set your mind at rest.

It is most likely nothing. There are lots of kinds of lumps that are completly harmless, but you will need to go to the doctor to have him check it out just to make sure.

You need to talk to your doctor, there is no sure way without doing so. Most likely, its a cyst. They are common in young women. Especially those who drink caffeine. More often than not, unless breast cancer runs strong in your family, you won't get it at such a young age. I found a lump at 24. It turned out to be nothing. The doc did an ultrasound to see what it was made of. they don't like doing Mammograms on young women since the breasts are still too dense. If they feel the need after the ultrasound, they will do a Mammo. (that's what happened with me) After wards the Doc decided that its was likely not cancer, but not a normal cyst since it was solid. We did surgery to remove it just to be safe, we didn't have to though. However once they are in there they can remove tissue to be tested to see what the chance/risk of you actually getting breast cancer at a later age. Luckily the test showed that I have a slim to none risk (my words, not theirs). SO bottom line is talk to your Doc either your family or OB/GYN.
