In certain conditions, some girls start way earlier or way later than that. But for girls with a normal growth and development curve, puberty will start during their middle school or high school years. During puberty, there is a natural increase in the hormone estrogen in the body. This is the hormone responsible for the dramatic changes that you are experiencing during adolescence, including your growing breasts. You may notice a lot more changes happening in your body, but breast development is usually the first thing you and everyone else would take note of.

My 8 yr old girl is growing breast buds & very painful,isn't obese,very active.is it normal/?
The male breast is much smaller than its female counterpart, and it cannot produce milk. Because of this smaller size and simpler structure, breast disease is much less common in men than women. Still, men can develop important breast problems, both benign and malignant.
I do not think you need a second opinion at this time. A breast bud generally does not suggest that there are any significant hormonal problems or that this is related to breast cancer if there is a family history of breast cancer, I would mention it to your child s doctor. By having her examined, the doctor gets a good history, checks to see if there are any other signs of puberty, any evidence of secondary sexual characteristics developing, or other possible causes for the lump.
