hello!
I'm 18 and sometimes randomly my breasts hurt, for a while I thought I had cancer but now I learned that it wouldn't hurt like that. Now I'm thinking that it's maybe just because they're growing? But I feel like it's kinda late for that... When the pain starts, it feels like it hurts more when I inhale and exhale. I'm really confused...
Thanks for the answer [Smile]

Breasts tend to fluctuate in sensitivity depending on your menstrual cycle-- you may notice them getting tender around when your period begins. They tend to be fully grown, so to speak, around your age, so growth may not be a factor.

Okay, but "tenderness" seems like a soft way to say it, it feels more like... I have an alien about the explode from my boobs! or, maybe like a ridiculously big cramp that stays for like 10 minutes, changes in intensity and then leaves! It can hurt like big menstrual cramps, so much that I have to cuddle myself in a corner in pain!

I'm sorry for your pain! It's probably still not atypical however.
