A young woman may experience a number of changes in her breasts during puberty and adolescence as she becomes an adult.

Some breast changes or conditions are related to her menstrual cycle, while others may occur at any time.

While most breast conditions are benign (non-dangerous), it is important for young women to be aware of the need for proper breast health so that she may detect any problems.

Some of the breast conditions young women may experience include:

  • Cyclical breast pain
  • Cysts
  • Fibroadenomas
  • Fat necrosis
  • Sclerosing adenosis
