My almost 8-year-old has a lump under her nipple that is tender. It's been there a couple of days. I'm sure it's probably just a swollen gland or something but was just wondering if anyone has had experience with this.
Like most parts of the body, breasts can be sore from time to time. Not only for girls, but for guys too. You may be worried about your body's development, about what causes breast soreness, and even about cancer.
This is one of the finishing touches preparing their lungs to breathe air when they are born.
