9 year old with breast pain

hi everyone, i posted this in another section but got no responses so i thought i'd try here.
My 9 yo daughter came to me this morning saying her breast hurt, only one. I kind of assume she is just starting to develop and its making her breast sore. Is this idea right or is something different going on? I don't want to give her the wrong information, but i just assumed that she's starting to develop. I think mine hurt also when i started to develop. But im not positive.
Thanks for any input !

Talking Re: 9 year old with breast pain

She probably is just developing I started getting breast pains when I was 10 they didn't stop untill I was probably 14 but they weren't really bad in the later years. Everything will be okay.

Re: 9 year old with breast pain

Hi hun,

Your daughter is probably just growing up and developing But it is odd that she is only feeling pain in one breast at such a young age i doubt its her developing.....Don't get her to caught up on that stuff!

Re: 9 year old with breast pain

I had breast pain too. Consider them "growing pains"

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.

Re: 9 year old with breast pain

thanks for all the replies, much appreciated. If it gets worse or visibly way more swollen than her other one then ill take her in. It is scary how young kids are hitting puberty these days!
