Re: My 12 year old daughter has LARGE lump in her left breats
I agree -- immediately take your daughter to the daughter to the doctor. BUT. As you may have found out by now, (after exhausting tests of mammograms, ultrasounds, etc.) - hormones can stimulate the growth of cysts in breasts, especially in young people whom are just getting their estrogen influx. They may do an ultrasound and needle biopsy first as she is so young before a mammogram. As a general rule (But DO NOT QUOTE ME!!) if something appears fast, it is generally something such as a cyst. The fact that it is tender leads me to believe that it could be cystic. However, always get something suspicious checked out. Best wishes and good luck to you both.
