    lump in my 9 year olds breast

    I have a 9 year old daughter that has a lump under one breast and it is painful. Is this a sign of development or should i be concerned? I'm looking for insight!? Any help would be appreciated!

    I really do not have any information I could share with you. I would recommend talking with your daughter's doctor. My thoughs are with you and your daughter.

    Take Care,

    Oh, how we moms worrry about our kids! Guess it goes with the territory, but it is never easy!

    Sadly, life doesn't give us a users manual..It merely give us a guide book which cautions us to watch for unusual conditions. Anytime something is amiss in our body, it is important we have it checked out. Though cancer usually doesn't have pain associated with the lump, that isn't always true. And though 9 years old is terribly young to even consider breast cancer, it does very rarely happen.

    Even if this proves to be nothing of concern, you know that you will not rest until you have a doctor's word on that, right? And, if it is something which needs to be addressed, the sooner you do so, the sooner the problem can be handled.

    Please know that you and your daughter will be in our thoughts. Keep us informed on how she is doing, okay?

    Blessings on you both! Rachael

    Hi Anna!

    I think odds are really good that it's normal development, but I agree with Barb that you should talk with your daughter's doc, and perhaps have him check it out. We can never be too careful, and as Rachel said, you will both feel better once you know what's going on.

    Blessings, Di

    Hello Anna8314
    I just found a lump in my 9 year old daughters breast, unfortunately I can't get her in until this afternoon. What was your daughters diagnosis. I hope it was just developmental growing.
