Hello doctor. I am 17 year old girl. I found a cyst in my breast which is increasing. And sometimes it pains. I am afraid that is it a symptom of breast cancer. Please suggest me what should I do?

Any breast lump needs to be examined thoroghly to rule out cancers. But at you age chances of cancer are very little. You should get a mammography and ultrasound of the breast and an FNAC. After that it will need to be removed.

At age of 17 years, most of the breast lumps are non cancerous tumor. There is no need to do anything for these lumps. Please consult with surgeon for more details.
