    Is there any way to stop this?

    At your age it might be related to your periods and cycle. Have you kept track on a calendar of when this condition happens and when you have your period?
    However you are too young to be worried about this which is why you should have it checked out.
    Speak to your mom ( or another adult family member) and start by going to a gynecologist. If you then need to be referred to another specialist the gynecologist can do that. Also it is a good idea for you to be seeing a gynecologist at your age anyway - even if there are no problems. You might want to take some pictures of the white spots so the doctor can see what it looks like in case it is not there when you go for your appointment.
    Let us know what you find out - and much good luck to you.

    Just echoing the other girls - check it out, as you should always check anything different going on with our body, and let us know what you find out!

    Best of luck ~ Jenna

    I agree with the other Ladies. It is always best to check things out.
    It is very good that you are aware of changes in your body even at your young age, because nobody will ever know it better than you.
    Take care & keep us updated

    Hello, I agree with the other ladies when something different appears you should get it checked out by your doctor. I also agree at your age that doctor should be an ob/gyn to do a complete breast exam to make sure everything is ok. Have you talked to your mother or anothr adult about these issues with your breast? It would be a good idea to find someone you are comfortable talking with and ask them about what is going on with your breast and showing them even taking picture to show them if you don't feel comfortable showing your actual breast. It is also a good idea to bring the pictures to the doctors with you so they can see how the spots look on your breast. But the most important thing right now is that you should not be spending your time worring about breast cancer at your age, you should be spending your time being a young girl having fun with her friends and being a young lady not an adult worring your self crazy. So get to the doctors and get it checked out to ease your mind and worries away. Then please go and enjoy life with your friends
    Please do come back and let us know how you are doing and what you may find out we do care about you and will keep you in our hearts and thoughts. Have a great day angel hugs Roberta,
