Signs of Early Puberty in Girls

See your doctor if your daughter shows signs of puberty like breast development, pubic or underarm hair development, rapid height growth, onset of menstruation,acne, body odor, before age 8. Early puberty can cause some long term health problems and keep your child from reaching her full height.

I have an 11 year old daughter who told me her nipple hurt. When I felt around it there was a lump. Small but there. Should I be worried or is it just her development? The other breast is fine. Please help!!

Hi Geograc,

This isn't unusual and is likely part of her development but if you remain concerned, or the next time she sees her doctor/pediatrician, let them know and they can check it out. :-)

It's only on one side and it's hard. But when I touch it to look at it she says it hurts. I have an appt for her but it's not until next week. Just concerned

Did you happen to find out if this was just development? I am wondering because my daughter is complaining of the same thing. And I also felt it and it was the same. I just dont remember having pain in mine when they developed so I am unsure.
Thanks
