    I find this very strange. Tell me, why would you be scared to tell your parents. If it were any of my children I would be the first person they would come to. Go and tell your mum and get to the doctor so you can put your mind at rest.

      Well, it's because I was sick pneumonia and had my appendix removed, and throughout all that time I had ovarian cysts. I currently still have one, it's endometrium. I have four siblings and I am the second eldest. I'm afraid my parents would think...

      Yes, thankfully they have insurance ! I am 16 years old. I had to do a lot of radiation-involved scans like X-rays and CT scans, and I was taking contraceptive pills ever since I was 13, when I first got my period. I thought to myself one day, maybe I should do a self breast exam. I did. I have weird yellow spots all over my nipples and one colourless spot almost in the centre of the left nipple. Also I feel this strange, I don't know if it's a lump, but it feels hard and it's sticking out. I had to do IGCSE last June, and my marks are coming out this Monday. I will not blame myself if I did badly because I was in the hospital ever other day that year. Although, I really do hope I did well!

      Please take a word from a grieving mom who just lost her son. NO parent would want their child to take a chance or suffer in silence with the fear of cancer. Tell your mom then post back to us that it is done and we'll cyber party with you. Luv...

    I know it is a very scary time you need to tell your mother and get to the drs. I know I would want my daughter to tell me if she had any concerns about something take care

    TELL YOUR MOTHER NOW! Do not let yourself keep worrying like this any longer. I would never want my child to so scared thinking she fearing she had such a disease. Chances are you are ok and do not have breast cancer. Please talk to your parents and have them make an appointment with your doctor asap. Take care, Sharon
