I am fourteen and I have what looks like a second nipple on one of my breasts, it's a hard lump. Should I go get it checked out? Is it possible I might have breast cancer?

    It is extremely rare for someone your age to develop breast cancer, but it wouldn't hurt to have your doctor check it out, to give you peace of mind.

    Many people have second nipples. I do not believe it would be cancer, but have it checked out just so you can have peace about it.

    I would also, first ask has it always been there? Some people are born with extra nipple tissue. As was already said it is very rare that someone your age would get breast cancer but not imposible. If it is something new, it would be wise to have a doctor check it out. They would be in a better position to tell you what it is.
