Crap, I have to go see a gynecologist (Warning: TMI ahead)

There's this little lump in my breast. It looks kind of like a sore, and it's hard, not at all like any part of a breast should be. I showed my mom (it was embarrassing), and she's made me an appointment with her gynecologist.

Crapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrap. I have no idea what the heck it is, and it's scaring me. Ugh. I hate waiting to find out.

Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? Any? I'm desperate here. I'm nervous and I'm scared.

It can be several things, but whatever one of those things it can be it already is.

It's sort of like a HIV test. There's nothing to worry about. The only thing you're going to be told is something over which you, at this point, have no control. So, you're about to learn reality. Some people get lumps often throughout their lives, but never cancer. So, your options now are: drive yourself crazy with worry, or relax because you can't control it anyway.

Of course, were I on my vegan soapbox, as a public service I would mention that countries where consumption of dairy and animal products don't exist, breast cancer is shockingly rare, and that if you chart said consumption across various countries, the people with the hughest consumption show the highest cancer rates. I'd also put up a link to The China Study website, or something like that, too. But, since that isn't the point of this reply, I think the first two paragraphs will suffice.

It's possible it's nothing,

It's possible it's nothing, but if it is something there's not much you can do anyways at this point. So just calm down, stress isn't good for you.

Good luck. :)

don't worry

At your age it's almost certainly nothing to worry about. Firstly you're 13 so cancer (especially breast cancer) is incredibly rare in your age bracket and you're 13 so you have crazy hormones causing all sorts of unexpected things boobwise

It's most likely a cyst or something like that.

Here's an article from NHS direct
It should put your mind at rest a bit.

Go see the gyno and get it checked, but it's very, very, very unlikely to be anything sinister. And on the absolutely miniscule chance it is anything bad you've found it and they can sort it out.

I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, so don't get too worked up about it. Good luck!

Thanks, everybody!

Now I have some ideas about what it could be. It feels better now that I have some ideas about what the heck this is.
