hello, i am 13 years old girl. two of my aunts had breast cancer, one died from it. i have heard that it can be hereditary, so i have been very concerned. i didnt think anyone my age could get cancer. lately i have been having pains. sometimes i have pains on my legs,arms, and back(they last a few minutes then go away). i also had pains in my breast (mostly the left side). just two weeks ago i notice a small rough dry pacth (looks almost like a scab) on my right breast. i do not know how it got there. i dont know if this make since, but i am really concern if it could be any type of cancer. also i have heard of lymph nodes, and if their swollen it could be infection, virus, or some types of cancer. i dont remember the first time i noticed it, but i have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my ear. i would really appreciate the help thanks!

I ve had a lump on my neck that burns for a few months- MRI shows that it is a swollen lymph node- I’ve also been going back and forth with Breast MRI s & Mammograms with some mammary nodes they are watching and also a pulmonary node that was shown on a chest xray (suggested that I go back in six months- that was a few months ago) They spotted the pulmonary node when a d-dimer test came back positive- I had gone in for chest pain. I also have some swelling/lumps on my left underarm- not painful to touch put do occasionally get a pinching nerve feeling going down my arm . My cause for concern is that my mother has had breast cancer young with some cancerous lymph nodes removed/mastectomy. My grandmother with pancreatic/bile duct cancer. My other symptoms have been extreme fatigue and now nausea. ENT says to follow up in three months or if the lymph node gets bigger to come back and possible biopsy- (I am concerned on whether this should be done sooner or not?) I am attaching my blood results- Recent Meds: Amlodopine 5mg Levothyroxine 50 MCG Metroprolol 25 MG

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
