    Go see youur GP about it. I'm sure its nothing to worry about but just to be on the safe side.

    I've always had quite firm breasts and when I was young used to get mastitis. I've recently lost a lot of weight (through healthy eating and exercise)but the outside of my breasts have become itchy and one seems to be getting firmer and a bit tender.Is it because of the change in my lifestyle? Or could it possibly be an abscess?

    Hey meby but don't worry :) I'm acc jelous in 14 and 30B

    Hi, when i was about 11 i felt large lumps under my nipples on both breasts,i went to the doctor to get checked and they said that it was just the breast itself growing, i started my period about 2 weeks ago(im 14 now) and i thought that perhaps that could have been the cause of it but it seems as though the lumps haven't decreased in size and my breasts feel very sore and tender especially when i lay on my front and the same thing happened when i tried to check myself...please help :(

    i have the same problem i have had it since i first noticed that i had boobs im 14 now and if any one has told you what the answer is i would like to know tho put my mind at rest :)

    At 14 I'm pretty sure the breasts are still growing - they may well remain until you reach your late teens. I'm 19 and I remember when they felt like that but it ought to improve when you finish puberty.

    Hi i am 14 and i havent started my period yet could it be because i am very skinny, do exercise everyday and get stressed very easily. I have all the signs: pubic hair, growing breasts, tender breasts, stomach cramps, mood swings, vaganil discharge (which is clear and doesnt smell) outbreaks in spots.... so why isnt it happening ?

    Honestly, do not worry, I am 15 and started mine when i was 14, most of my friends had started before me and i am larger than most of them. It will happen when you least expect it but in the mean time enjoy not having the worry! I was worried that i wasn't normal either but as the video says, it can happen anytime up to your late teens :)

    I had my period one week ago and now my breasts are very sore and tender again which had been goin on for over a week they hurt so much, i mean i usually get sore breasts before my period but never like this. It started last month just before my period last month i took a test so i know im not pregnant and i've checked for lumps etc and everythimg seems to be fine but why are my breasts so sore now..I am 26, female. Thanks in advance for responses.

    I have tender breasts - the right one is far more tender than the left. I have had my breasts checked twice in teh last 6m for lumps and got the all clear both times. I guess it is hormonal? (I am definitely not pregnant but do have a contraceptive implant.) I have been recommended Evening Primrose Oil capsules but I'm not very good at taking them regularly so have not noticed any effect. Should I go back to the doctors a third time? I am a bit worried, but as I said, have no lumps.

    Hi, I am 37yrs old and for the past 10yrs i have suffered with extremely tender breasts. I have been several sizes over the years, ranging from 11stone to just over 6stone, i'm 5ft 7ins and currently weigh 8stone. I've noticed over the years that once i go over 7.5stone my breasts including my nipples get so tender. The only time the pain goes is when i get my period (i think i'm the only woman that looks forward to getting her periods!!)i also have little spots that look like white heads on my nipples and if squeezed puss does come out. As you can imagine this has caused many problems within my marriage as sometimes well most of the time i cant let my husband touch them because they are that tender so we have resulted in having sex around my period as they dont get tender again until two three days after my period stops. I went to the doctors many years ago and he told me it was to do with my hormones and that i would have to take loads of tablets a day for the rest of my life! So for over 8yrs i have put up with the pain, but its now got to the stage that i'm not eating (again) so i will lose the half stone needed to let me have pain free breasts! Obviously all this yo-yoing in weight has caused other elements one being my bowel movements, i go every morning and the best way to describe it is i have diarrhoea every day, i cant remember the last time i had 'normal' movement!I would dearly love a solution to this problem or even what it is and if there is anything i can do that will stop the pain othe then losing weight. Thank You

    i am a 19 year old female, ill be 20 on february 2. and a few months ago i notcied my breasts , both my breasts were sore and tender, kinda like before your period, only they stayed this way 24/7 so i kind of just shrugged it off, few weeks ago i noticed while i was washing my left breast it was really tender like pain almost i went to the mirror and looked at both of them took a long hard look, i examined both of them and notcied my left breast was a bit heavier than my right. so i told my mom about it and she said to wait and see if the pain goes away. so i did and the pain was still there, i wa sshowering a few days ago and notcied hard grizzly spots in my left breast, it has gotten to the point where i cant do much physical activity becuase if my breasts jiggle or bounce around it hurts. and said to my mom i need to get my breasts checked so i went and my doctor sent me in for an ultra sound on each breast and the results came in today and i have Fibroadenoma, for the pain i was told to take tylonal and ibeprofan every 4 to 6 hours for 1 week not sure how that will help but im not a doctor so..... i think its extermly important for girls to make sure they get there breasts checked..

    Every girl develops at a different age, so never worry about when you develop, these signs are normal, Some girls don't even develop at 14, some go into their late teens, so it may be a couple more years, or you may just be developing slowly, Remember, every girl is different and we all start developing at different ages (and ignor the boy's, for all you know they may not have developed either)

    I know how you feel, I am just the same. I am embarrassed to go swimming because I am that self conscious. I know that people develop at different rates but the boys don't care. Mine are also tender and swelling slightly. I am also worried that I will start my periods much later than my friends and feel isolated and immature. I am happy with all my other body parts, but it's my tiny breasts that I feel uncomfortable about.

    I too have dealt with this while beginning the early stages of menopause. I had partial hysterectomy so I didn't have a cycle but started journaling the onset of this itching was right after the breasts were tender as if I was about to have a cycle. Every time the breasts got tender the itching came about two weeks .... Around time my cycle should be present. My dr gave me a script for diflucan pills and took one daily for 10 days each cycle. As my symptoms became few and far between with absent cycles the itching was at bay. I went several years suffering before realizing this. It's hormonal and bacteria imbalance I guess. Never got a name for it but finally got some relief with longer treatment with yeast meds.hope this helps.

    hi I'm now 27 and hate my breasts there to big I'm a size 8 in clothes and 32-34gg I'm getting physiotherapy on my back what makes it worse I got in a car accident and my spine was very tender ended up with x rays etc I need help my breasts and too big and low can anyone help pls I get so stressed.

    I had the same problem, especially during my time of the month. Go to a pharmacy or a health store and get "dessicated liver" capsules. I found the ones in a gel capsule with the dried liver powder inside work best - you may have to find those on the internet. Solved the problem almost immediately - it was amazing to me! A woman Doctor gave me this information years ago.

    Why at the age of 25 have my breasts grown? I have been experiencing tender breasts for around months now and being recently measured i have discovered i have gone up 1 cup size nearly 2. I have put on some weight over the last 6 months but not anything significant.

    My breasts become quite lumpy around that time of the month, I've seen my doctor about this and he reassurred me that the hormones produced at this time do have an effect on the way my breasts feel. I would suggest checking again after your period and if your left breast is still tender and firmer, go and see your doctor. It's always worth getting something that is worrying you checked. I've now been checking my breasts for years and have got used to the hormonal changes, I'm sure you will too

    Hi I'm 32, and my left breast has become very uncomfortable. My breasts have both started to double in size about a week to two weeks before my period, which makes them a bit tender, but nothing major. My worry is the left one that is tender for all of the month but in the week - two weeks before my period it feels like someone is stabbing it with a hot poker. I asked my doctor and she didn't seem to think it was an issue, as with most things she put it down to my hormones. I am worried and thinking getting a second opinion may be a good idea.
