Lump

Hi, I have a lump in both of my breasts, one larger and a sore to touch. Its been like this for a year and a half now. I am 13 so is this a part of growing? I was at the doctors a year ago and they said it was acompletley normal, but just to be 100% safe, should i worry?

Hiya, dear! It's totally part of growing up. It may be caused by your mammary glands developing. I remember that my breasts were itchy too back then in the puberty period. Now they are still too sensitive especially at the time of PMS but it's just way that it may be. Not necessary, not unusual. If you don't trust your doctor then try to go to another one.
