Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

Well I do understand your concern and it is more too of a social problem. You will need to understand that if your breast sizes are different, then it is probably a problem of increased mass due probably to a tumor or increase tissue (adipose/fatty) abnormality. In order to get them having the same shape, it will depend only on the cause. You will need to see a doctor (you can opt for a female doctor if you feel embarrassed talking with a male doctor) who can examine both breast, probably run a mammography to determine what made the difference. You need to be open minded about the possibility of a surgery as most breast asymmetry are structural problems and medications will not be able to help. You should be rest assured that most breast surgeries are not very invasive and success rates are great with minimal complications. So if surgery was the only alternative to get a normal size breast (or symmetry), then I suggest you follow through with it. In the other hand, if the cause requires medications, then you are in the luck (for no surgery).

Hope this info helps and reassures you. If you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to ask.
