It would be very very rare, but probably is possible. However, it sounds more like hormonal issues. Breasts can be very painful with ovulation. Ask your parent to take you to a doctor. Do not be embarrased. See a femal doctor if it would make you more comfortable. Hormones change in the middle of menstrual cycles and I used to get that horrible stabbing pain every month midway in my cycle.
Yes it is possible but very, very rare. Breasts change during the month because of the hormonal changes that they are subjected to once menstruation begins. Your pain is probably due to the hormone 's fluctuating up and down. If it continues for more than 10 days you need to see your doctor, but it almost certainly will disappear and return again from month to month. Of course if you feel any lumps or have extended pain see a doctor.
I do not think for one moment that you have cancer. I know you hear and read a lot about breast cancer in our society and that being aware of it is important but at your tender age it is unheard of. Even at the age of 35 breast cancer is really very rare being much more a disorder of older women aged 55 and over. The changes you are noticing are extremely common at 13 because at this age your hormones are changing and your breasts are developing and all this makes breast lumps much more likely. The fact that your breasts are tender is typical but very, very normal. Also your breasts will almost certainly keep on growing for a year or two so you probably will not end up being any smaller than other girls in the long run. Most cases of breast cancer occur 'by chance'. However, breast cancer does occur more often than usual in some families because of their genetic make-up. If you are concerned that your risk of developing breast cancer is higher than usual because of your family history, then see your doctor for assessment. If you have a moderately increased risk then an option is to have breast screening (mammography) at an earlier age than normal, and more often than usual. If you have a high risk then you may be offered genetic testing, counselling and regular breast screening tests. The cause of breast cancer is probably a combination of factors. These include lifestyle factors, environmental factors, hormone factors and probably other unknown factors. Your genetic make-up is another factor which is known to be involved. About 1 in 20 women are likely to carry a faulty gene that gives them a higher risk than the general population of developing breast cancer. This may vary from a moderate increase in risk to a high risk. You inherit half of your genes from your mother and half of your genes from your father. So, if you carry a faulty gene there is a 50:50 chance that you will pass it on to each child that you have. Because of these faulty genes, breast cancer does occur more often than usual in some families. This is sometimes called 'familial breast cancer' or 'hereditary breast cancer'. Note: not all women with these faulty genes will develop breast cancer. It is just that the risk is increased. Assessing your risk As breast cancer is common, many of us will have a relative who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. This is not usually due to any of the 'faulty genes' mentioned above, but is more often 'by chance'. Most women with a family history of breast cancer do not have a greatly increased risk of developing breast cancer compared to the normal risk of the general population. However, some women are at greater risk than usual. In general, your risk becomes greater: if The more blood relatives you have who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The closer the blood relationship to you of the person with breast cancer. The younger your relatives were when they were first diagnosed with breast cancer, especially if they were under the age of 40. If a relative had breast cancer which affected both breasts. If a male relative developed breast cancer. If both breast and ovarian cancer run in the family. If certain other uncommon cancers have developed in family members. For example: ovarian cancer, a sarcoma under the age of 45, a glioma, or childhood adrenal cancer. If you come from certain ethnic backgrounds. For example, the Ashkenazi Jewish community have a higher incidence of genes which increase the risk of breast cancer. What should you do if you are concerned: If you are concerned about a history of breast cancer in your family you should see your GP. He or she will want to take a family history. Therefore, before seeing your GP, try to get as much detail about who in your family has been diagnosed with breast cancer (or other cancers), at what age they were diagnosed, and their exact blood relationship to you. Your GP will wish to know any relevant details about first and second degree relatives (from your father's side as well as from your mother's side). First degree relatives are - mother, father, daughters, sons, sisters, or brothers. Second degree relatives are - grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, half-sisters and half-brothers. On the basis of the family history, it is usually possible for your GP to assess your risk as either near normal, moderate, or high. If your risk is moderate or high then, if you wish, you may be referred to a specialist for further assessment and counselling.
The chances of breast cancer at 13 are as close to zero as makes almost no difference. If you did have it your case would make news headlines worldwide. Breast cancer is almost unheard of in under 25s (let alone young teens); fewer than 0.1% of those diagnosed with it are under 30, and only 5% are under 40. Most (80%) are over 50. I have had breast cancer; at my diagnosis I was classed as 'young' and allocated to the breast care nurse whose special interest was 'breast cancer in younger women'. I was 50. Pain is rarely a sign of breast cancer; most people diagnosed with it have felt no pain. At your age, with your breasts still developing, this is almost certainly hormonal and perfectly normal. Talk to your mother about this; if you don't feel comfortable doing that, talk to your school nurse; she will be used to girla having worries like this and will be able to reassure you. You say breast cancer runs in your family. In fact breast cancer that runs in families is very rare. Only 5 - 10% of all breast cancer cases are hereditary; those that are hereditary are due to a rare inherited faulty gene. Breast cancer diagnosed after the age of 50 is even less likely to be hereditary. If you simply mean some of your family members have had breast cancer, that is not the same thing at all as breast cancer 'running in your family'. One in eight women develop breast cancer, so it isn't unusual for two or more members of the same extended family to have had non-hereditary breast cancer. Unless it's been established that the breast cancer in your family was due to one of the faulty genes, and unless one of your parents inherited that gene, it's extremely unlikellt that you're at any increased risk of breast cancer. And even when breast cancer does run in a family, the chances of developing it at 13 are still just about nil.
It might be cancer, or it's just because it's growing... because at the age of 13, usually because u r growing
