These tiny breast cancers are usually easier to treat than larger ones.

There is very little actual breast tissue present at birth, although a few days after birth it is not at all unusual for babies to produce what is referred to as 'witches milk' from their nipples. This is said to be caused by the strong influence of the mother's hormones just before delivery, and then the milk is not present again until other conditions later in life cause lactation to start up. Females reach a certain time during which their breasts begin to develop further.
