I have a 9 yr old daughter with a lump in her chest, what are the odds of cancer?
She has an oblong lump behind the nipple, started out about an inch long, maybe 1/4 inch wide. It has doubled it's size in 1 week. She's sceduled for an ultrasound late this week, but the doctor won't tell us what he suspects it may be. What are the odds of cancer? Does cancer usually grow that quickly? My grandfather died at age 45 from lymphatic cancer....how concerned should I be at this point?
Additional Details
This is a hard lump and is causing her pain when she's active (running, jumping, playing). Puberty has already been ruled out as the cause.

Take her to the doctor espically if a family member had cancer.

I dont think its cancer

Its very rare at her age but of course possible. I do not know how fast cancer can grow. I can however say that it could be an infection or a cyst both of witch can grow quite fast. I am sure there are other things it can be too. If its cancer I am sure that it will keep growing at the same rate it is now. It can be a non-cancerous tumour. Good thing your getting it checked out asap.

Very good chance its not cancer but you have the right to be scared.

I wish there was a way you could let us know what it was when you found out. I hope shes OK. Good luck you have my prayer but its probably OK.

Just to let you know I have been there myself so its common for lumps to appear all though out life. No cancer or serious or lasting problem so far here.

Quiet one
On the way to the doctor's, buy a juicing machine, carrots, and apples and making drinking carrot juice fun and make it delicious. Find a way to put the meat you'd otherwise cook for her on the back burner somewhere. See how many delicious looking dishes you can think up with pretty fruits raw.

i ♥ hello kitty
i had a lump in both breasts when i was young, i went to the doctor and he told me it was because i was developing.

probably the same thing with your daughter..

but definitely go to the doc to get it check since you kind of have a family history

good luck

goodness, please see the cancer experts. I wont make light of this like some will. catch this early and do your best. better to be safe then sorry.

Don't worry, it's not cancer, a lot of times lumps or tumors are seen as cancer, but it turns out to be a false. Once you go to a doctor for an examination, than you'll know what it really is. They are the experts with medical devices that can determine if it's cancer. But at the age the chances of her having cancer is extremely, low, low!!! Don't worry my mom was 55 years old and she had a tumor like lump, but it wasn't a cancer. So, don't be tormented by negative thoughts until you take her to a doctor. But again, the chances of her having cancer is very low, very low because of her age. Unless if her family has a history of cancer.

Chances are it's a benign cyst of some sort, but you are doing the right thing, getting it checked out.

I had the same thing at her age. It was just an enlarged lymph node. Has she had a recent infection? I had just recovered from strep throat. Try not to worry too much, it's probably just a lymph node, a blacked milk duct, or maybe at worst, fibrocystic breast disease (also benign)

Hopefully it is a early stage. They can do something to stop the growth.

that's something that you should get checked out ASAP just in case it is something serious. You're best chances to beat it, if it is anything is to catch it as early as possible. Hopefully it is nothing to worry about.

At this point, you should only have one concern. Don't stop until you hear from the doctor.

The usual cause of any cancer, would be if it runs in your family or your immune system can't do it's job. After your in your forties you really need to take care of yourself because as your body's cells age and break down, cancer is more likely unless you prepare!

The doctor wouldn't be doing his job, if he got you up in a panic about something that may not even be Cancer! Even a growth in the body can be benign. Like a callus on you palm cells in your body can be stimulated to grow for any reason.

Once again, don't listen to anyone else except the doctor. Including me!

Good luck!

I don't think you should worry yourself til you know for sure. I know that's hard, but just try to stay calm and have fun times with your precious little girl.
You'll know soon enough whether or not to worry.
I sincerely hope all goes well for you and your daughter.

oh my goodness. The doctor is probably not telling you what he may or not suspect because he wants the ultrasound done first . You wouldn't want him to tell you one thing and it be something else.

I cannot tell you the odds of it being cancer but hope that she is ok.

But I can pray for her.

When i wasyoung i had the same thing happen to me. My mum took me to the doctor just to make sur eit was ok. Turned out it was just my breasts were developing. I hope all goes well for you and goodluck.

Since you say that she is having pain in the lump, it is causing worry. Please have it removed by a surgeon and before that a needle biopsy if possible can be done.

The surgeon you contact shouldbe a surgical Oncologist and he will find out exactly waht it is and treat her. Because Cancer can also occur in young children and adolescents, but it is rare. Some studies have concluded that pediatric cancers, especially leukemia, are on an upward trend.

The age of peak incidence of cancer in children occurs during the first year of life. Leukemia (usually ALL) is the most common infant malignancy (30%), followed by the central nervous system cancers and neuroblastoma. The remainder consists of Wilms' tumor, lymphomas, rhabdomyosarcoma (arising from muscle), retinoblastoma, osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma.

Female and male infants have essentially the same overall cancer incidence rates, but white infants have substantially higher cancer rates than black infants for most cancer types. Relative survival for infants is very good for neuroblastoma, Wilms' tumor and retinoblastoma, and fairly good (80%) for leukemia, but not for most other types of cancer.

I do not want you to take chances. Pleas attend immediately.

The doctor isn't telling you what he suspects because he has a list of possibilities, some benign and some malignant. He simply doesn't know anything for sure and doesn't want you to get your hopes up and then deflate them, or to get you ready for the worst unnecessarily.

Yes, cancer can grow fast, but the fast growing ones aren't always the worst. Most cancer medicines work best on quickly reproducing cells. In your case, it looks like you were paying attention, so whatever this particular illness may be, you've got a good chance of catching it early, and that's what's needed for the best outcome.

Cancer treatment today is much better than it was even 10 years ago, so even if it is, it's not a death sentence. My own daughter had a biopsy a while back that showed cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma. This is a really slow growing cancer but that was about 6 years ago. She's doing really well. We don't know what the future holds, but then again, none of us do. When we saw the biopsy report, I started giving her Essiac tea, or the local equivalent. It's a natural herbal tea that some claim helps with cancer. Did it help my daughere? Don't know for sure, but she only gets occasional small spots on her skin where other children with this rare cancer are much worse off.

Don't jump to conclusions; have hope and don't let the unknown future ruin the now.


oh god, I am so sorry that you have this burden on you, but really cancer normally does not grow this fast. maybe a tumor that is non cancerous, but with her being nine, growing causes lots of mysterious bumps and stuff, so I would try to relax, and I will pray for you and your daughter. I am really so that I am not able to hug you right now sweetie... the dr will see you two soon and until then the worry will only make you miserable...

I had the same thing when I was about that age. The doctor said it was just a part of my development and nothing to worry about. Of course, no one here can tell you for sure what it is, but breast cancer at that age would be extremely rare.

I had the same thing happen with 2 of my daughters. Its probably a bud. The breast is starting to develop. No she is not to young to develop thats when it starts. I freaked out with my daughters and i took them both to the Dr to play it safe. Keep your appointment to play it safe too. she's your child you'll always be concerned so I not going to tell you to blow it off. I hope and I pray that it is just a blossom. Please keep us informed.

ive heard that cancerous tumors do not hurt so thats good

Obviously medical advice should be sought. However, it may ease your mind to know that most malignant lumps are not painful.

Cyndi S
Sounds like a fatty tumor. They are not malignant but they look scary if you don't know what they are. Cancer does not generally present like this nor does it grow that fast. I hope it isn't anything serious. We'll all be praying for good news. God bless and keep you and your family.
