Thanks for posting your query.
A considerable increase in the size of the breast as compared to the other breast is a worrisome finding. It could have happened due to an abnormal growth or due to fluid retention in the area secondary to lymphatic infiltration.
You need to consult your oncologist regarding this and get yourself examined and investigated under his guidance.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
