Re: 9 year old with breast pain
Girls are starting to develop and hit puberty as early as 7 now. 7 year olds getting their periods and developing hair and breasts. Its common now for girls to start hitting puberty really early. I just watched a show on it not too long ago. A lot of young girls are getting their periods at 9 now, its close to the average age now. I started developing body hair, and breasts and what not at 10, I got my period 4 days after my 11th birthday, that was only 9 years ago..and that was early at my age - most of my friends were a year or 2 behind me. But now 11 is common. Im pretty sure she is just developing. Is there any chance though that she could have been playing and hit it...and maybe bruised her breast area and she just didnt really realise it? Im almost positive it cant be anything serious at her age, your best bet is she hurt herself, or she's developing. It happens at really young ages now. But if it persists, or gets worse, go to a doc to at the very least ease your worries and reassure you.
