I am 18. A random, propably normal breast pain (just in the right one, just today) inspired me to feel myself up.
Everything is the same as normal, including the semi-symmetrical somethings inside my boobs (one in each). I think i asked a school nurse about them in high school and she told me not to worry about them, but it's been several years so i don't remember for sure. The somethings don't feel any different than back then, there is no discernible change. I don't know what they are, but by drawings i managed to dig from google, they are propably mammary glands. At least they match the location and propable size.
I still cried at 3 am and am still crying at 5 am because i just realized that i'm not completely sure whether i had asked school nurse or not, and whether or not you are supposed to feel your mammary glands when squeezing your breasts from several angles. And also because everybody has told me to regularly check my breasts, but nobody has told me what they are supposed to feel like, so i don't actually know what is normal. I can't ask my mother because it's 5 am and because she propably doesn't know either, judging by her other ignorances.
Please tell me that the answer to the question is yes. I can't sleep.

19F. In the last few months, I have been having extremely swollen mammary glands a week before and during my period. I know that this is normal, but they sometimes even hurt without touching, especially one that is on my breast, but kind of above it, between my breast and collarbone. It gets visibly swollen at that time of the month and it's only on the left side? Is this normal? I also experienced some hormonal disbalance around 2 months ago as I was really stressed and my period didn't come on time, so I took pills so it could start.
So I have a female cat who is 1 years old, she had a litter of kittens roughly 6 weeks ago. Ive noticed her bottom two breasts are swollen and feel almost rock hard. Shes not in any pain however even when i touch them and her behaviour is otherwise the same (eating, looking after her kittens, litter uses etc). I have already booked a vets appointment but does anyone know any potential causes for this? When i squeeze her nipples nothing actually comes out, and since her kittens are eating they rarely go to her for milk (i also have kitten milk for them).
She is on a waiting list to be spayed, she does not have any desires to go outside so she wont “sneak out” so dont worry about surprise pregnancies!
Hi everyone, first time posting.
In March, I happened across the most haggard looking dog. She was emaciated and almost all her fur had fallen out from neglect. When I called out to her, she ran right up to me wagging her tail and asking to be pet. I brought her to the Waco Humane Center and planned on leaving her there, but just couldn't bring myself to, so I brought her home as a foster, promising that I would only take care of her until she was well enough to be put up for adoption.
I guess my resolve wasn't strong enough, because Wagyu ended up being a part of the family in less than 2 weeks. During those two weeks she gained 10 of the 30 lbs she needed to gain, and put on the remaining 20 by May. She was looking much better, until I found out she had heartworms, and would need treatment.
After three rounds of shots, and ample rest, I thought that she was going to be A-OK, and that we were going to be the best running buddies. She was acting like a dog, zooming around and barking at squirrels. However, things took a turn when I noticed a mass growing on her mammary. I took her to the vet, where they told me she has mammary gland cancer and would need surgery to remove the mass. They don't know if it's malignant or benign, and I don't know what to think. I've heard that mammary tumors are typically pretty fatal and don't have a cure. Surgery is really hard on me financially, as I'm a student and I had to pay for her heartworm treatment already. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with all of this? I'm so overwhelmed.
