I'm 15 yrs old and got my first period about a month ago. Are my Breasts Tubular?

First, at 15 your breasts are probably still growing. If they do not improve, there are certainly things that can be done. But, you will need permission from your parents to see a plastic surgeon.
Are my Breasts Tubular?
There are a number of features that define a tuberous breast:
•Wide and puffy areolae
•widely spaced breasts
•high breast fold
•constricted lower pole (deficient tissue in lower half of the breast
•minimal breast tissue
•high breast fold
Without a photo it is hard to comment further. You may have attached one but because you are under 18 they have are not posted.
In any case, best advice is to have a discussion with your pediatrician or family doctor, who may choose to have you see a plastic surgeon for a consultation. It is most unlikely that any surgery would be suggested until you have passed the age at which further breast development is unlikely.
All the best

The description you give sounds consistent with a tuberous breast deformity...but there's really no way to advise you without photographs. In general, a tuberous breast is one where there is a sort of 'herniation' of breast tissue into the nipple/areola. This extra tissue sitting under the areola causes the areola to widen. The base of the breast fails to widen so the breast often has a narrow and long appearance. Please submit photographs so you can get more of an answer for your particular case.
