If a teenager has a lump in each breast does that mean she has breast cancer?

Lumps and Breast Cancer

In answer to this question, no, it doesn't necessarily mean a teenager has breast cancer if she/he has a lump in each breast! You don't have to have a lump to have breast cancer. If there is a lump, it could be a cyst and for teens all breast examinations, feeling for changes and LOOKING for changes should be done after menstruation. If the lump remains after menstruation she/he should be seen by a doctor. There are many people who have fibrocystic breasts. To make sure this is a cyst, the doctor can perform a needle biopsy which is non-invasive.
