I am a 13 y/o girl and today I realized that on of my breasts is more hard in some areas that the other is not. I’ve experienced no pain but I just realized that one breast was firmer/ harder than the other and now I’m worried about if it’s breast cancer! -Eloise

Hello Eloise

Thank you for writing.

Breasts that aren't exactly alike are normal. In fact, most are slightly different from each other. At 13, you are just starting to develop and you will find differences at some stage, from size to firmness to nipple changes. This is normal and has no connection to cancer. If you have further concerns, talk to a trusted adult or your doctor when you have an annual meeting with her.
