Hello I am 15 and turning 16 in January. I haven't had any form of period. I know for a fact I'm not a late bloomer (started growing breasts around 4th grade). I have an average American life style... don't exercise much, still exercise just not a whole lot. I'm overweight but closer towards the average weight than the obese size.
Another question i have is one morning i woke up with a strange lump on my left breast, my immediate reaction was breast cancer (thanks to society) after a little research that was ruled out since I'm a teenager. It's kinda small about the size of thumb nail (not tiny fingers xD) in the morning it appeared like broken skin (showing lots of tiny veins) and very red. I checked after school it had gone down a little bit still red but there was a tiny brown spot (almost microscopic) and on the side closer to me (was located near the nipple) there was white flakes (my assumption is dead skin) scratched it a bit to check got more white (still think dead skin). The lump is hard mainly in the area where the brown spot is and around it is soft.

aquaneon: Have you ever had a gynocological exam yet? If you haven't the you need to go get one. Have your mother go with you. It's not normal to not get a period yet. I'd say the doctor would probably recommend birth control to get you jump started and maybe do some blood work on you to see what's going on. The skin thing can be addressed to. It sounds like a wart or a skin tag.
The area on your breast sounds like it could be an abcess. Is it hot to the touch and have you noticed if you are running a temp? They may have to excise it or get you some antibiotics going. Yes, you really need a gynecological exam. I hope that your mother would realize that some things just can not wait. This is important. Please tell her how worried you are and that you would really like to make an appointment now. Also, you could go to a clinic on your own and get some answers. Sincerely, searchin
Wonderful! I am glad to hear you are having a period now. I am just saying that some boils or abscesses need to be drained and the patient needs an antibiotic sometimes. I still think you might want to have the "boil" looked at. Sincerely, searchin
