a small difference in size is normal, you mentioned that your right is bigger than left, in general the same difference, if it is 10-20% difference don't worry and do some exercises and consult a gynecologist.

welcome to health care magic,
your concern is right as significant difference in breast size should be investigated.this could be due to a lump orsome other pathology which can be confirmed by an ultrasound and,go and consult a surgeon.take care.

Significant difference in Breast size can be bothersome and if you are uncomfortable then you need a Plastic surgery consultation.If the abnormality is there due to a lump or due to breast tissue only needs to be determined by mammo/Sonography.Lumps can be easily removed .If breast needs to be reduced t is possible with minimal scarring and will help you in your self esteem.see for details.

Some difference in size is acceptable and is normal. But if it is gross than consult a gynaecologist and examination of both the breasts. If there is no pathology, as per your breast size you can undergo cosmetic surgery as for breast beautificatioin
