  • ^^^^ exactly what they said

    She could get a period any time from now on... sure hope you have prepared her for that. If not, now is the time.

  • It's probably puberty but I would have her go to the dr. just to check it out. It would also be a good visit if she has any questions on menstruating, hormones or using a tampon.

  • I agree...probably puberty but it could also be fibrocystic breast tissue...I have it and if I don't take Evening Primrose Oil I will get lumps in my breast...still, she should see a Dr. just to rule out anything more serious...

  • More than likely breast buds. She is at the right age for her body to start changing. Puberty will soon be here.

  • If the lump is where her nipple area is, then it could be puberty. But if the lump is'nt near the area then it could be something else. Best thing to do is call her Pediatrician and have her looked at.

    Good Luck
