    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Signs of Early Puberty in Girls
    Louise_WebMD_Staff posted:
    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.

    Don't battle over hair-it will grow out or get cut eventually. Save the battles for the big issues. More
