Sorry if this is a bit obvious but sometimes simple things get over looked. Has she started her period yet? A friend of mine had a daughter of 8 years old start her period so it is quite possible that the pain in her breast is caused by her body preparing for her first. When it comes to lumps and bumps again this can be related to periods. Best thing to do if it doesn't seem to disappear or gets any bigger is to get it checked at GPs. At your daughters age as well it could simply be growing pains/change in hormones.

Hope that's helps a bit?!

It could be growing pains in her boobs. Does she understand that they will be growing soon?? If not now might be a good time to tell her and to explain that this could be a reason for her pain. I would also explain to her that sometimes people get bad lumps in their boobs and give her the option of seeing the doc.
This kind of thing makes me glad my eldest (a boy) is only 6!!

My friends daughter had this and for about 2-3 weeks had the startings of a boob on her left side while still totally flat the other!!! Not long after she went running into her mum's bedroom at 6am one morning coz the other side had 'appeared' over night!!!!

Certainly does sound like she's 'sprouting' hun. Watch out for mood swings etc, if she's not had any already - u mite start to see a pattern emerging as to when she mite be pre-menstral etc.

hi i have a 16yr old and an 11 yr old, my eldest was 11 when she started her periods and my 2nd was 10, but they started with pubity and mood swings at about 8 yrs old. Apparently and it was true with both my girls that once they hit the 7 stone mark and have under arm hair showing they can start their periods. so just look out for them signs and you'll have an idea when its coming
