Ever since last month I noticed a lump in my boob around my period, my Mum said it was just hormones so we didn't make an appointment for the doctor as we believed it would go away after my period. I thought it had but then I realised it never went away, it just wasn't painful anymore since my period was over. I thought it could be serious but Mum reassured me it wasn't anything too serious. However, this month it's painful and you can see the veins surrounding my nipple. Is this something sinster or is it just as my Mum said, absolutely normal?

    What does the lump feel like? (Is it hard, squishy, moveable etc)

      It is really hard and quite big. It's moveable when I'm not on my period however when I'm due on, it becomes less moveable around my boob.

      Hmm.. I've never really heard of that before. It may be fat tissue or, yes, period-related, but just to be safe you should bring it up with your mom again and possibly have a doctor check it out. Don't stress too much over it, though. I've seen somewhere that more than 80% of breast lumps are benign (noncancerous) and you're still only a teen, after all. Good luck!
