Pain in right breast, felt a bruise and lump under the breast. Is it normal for teenagers?

Hi, im a 14 year old girl and just yesterday my right breast starting to have pain, I ignored it thinking it would go away but it didnt. When I pressed around it, it felt like there was a lump under my breast and its painful, like a bruise would when you press on it. It still continues to hurt today. Im just a little concerned, im not sure if its something serious or if its just something normal for a teenage girl.

Thanks for your query.
Teenagers go through erratic hormonal fluctuations, before their periods and hormones start to stabilize.
Hence around this time, it is common to experience breast pain and discomfort.
Lumpiness of the breasts is also more around this time, as tissue is dense.
However, you could be having a small benign lump too, called a fibroadenoma.
You should see a doctor to rule out this possibility.
Take care.
