One of my breasts is bigger then the other and it feels harder then the other, it hurts to the touch or when I jump or run - could this be breast cancer or just growth? (It hasn't seemed to have gotten any worse then past few months)

    It could be growth or growing pains, but that depends on your age. If you're young, that's probably it. But if not, then it's hard to tell. In a situation like this, having it checked out by a doctor is probably the safe thing to do.

    I agree. You should have it checked out. My mother's first sign was a change in breast size but it was not followed up by her doctor. When she had her mammogram a couple of months later, they found the growth. Could have been caught sooner if they had responded to the change in breast size.

    Get it checked for sure! I found one lump in my breast that didn't hurt and seemed to come from nowhere. When I had the mammogram and ultrasound they found the other lump which was in a site that was always tender. Both are estrogen/ progesterone positive and were reacting to my hormone spikes during my cycle.
