Taylor Thompson was planning to spend her summer vacation by the pool with friends. Instead, she spent a month becoming very familiar with her hospital in Little Rock, Ark. It started with a casual mention to her mother that she felt a quarter-sized lump in her right breast. Doctors diagnosed her with breast cancer. She was 13 years old. The lump Thompson found in her breast was a type of fast-growing, potentially malignant tumor generally found in premenopausal women, not in girls Thompson's age.

What Should A Teenage Girl Do If She Finds A Lump In Her Breast? -- ScienceDaily
The breasts start to enlarge during this first stage of puberty due to the effects of the hormone estrogen. The estrogen causes the breast tissue cells to grow and enlarge. Some girls probably have a few more breast tissue cells on one side, or the cells may be a little more sensitive to the effects of the estrogen. Many adult women will notice that one of their breasts is slightly larger than the other, but the difference is usually very slight. Just as most of us have one foot that is slightly larger than the other. Very rarely, women can have a marked difference in the size of the two breasts that can be uncomfortable or require surgical intervention. I would reassure your daughter and yourself!

I had my period a month after I turned 12 and I'm pretty athletic, I have some abs and muscle. My mom is a 38C but she's a bit overweight so I may or may not inherit that size when I'm older. It's hard to tell what bra size I might be because most of the women on my mom's side of the family are overweight and have big boobs, but my dad's family is pretty fit, but I never noticed the women's boob size in his family, but I'll probably get my dad's mom's boobs because I got most of my dad's traits, his green eyes, athletic ability, personality, and ability to do math well lol.
