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.

hi,
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 mammography.so,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 cosmetic-plastic-surgery.com 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

I am 58 and haven t had a mammogram for 10 years. I had lumps removed (fibroadenoma) at 17 and 44 years old. I had mammogram recently and found clustered microcalcifications in both breasts (birad4) I was asked to get biopsy. The surgeon also found a lump. Long story short both lump and calcs came out benign. However, I am concerned about my life in future. Should I get mastectomy to stop worrying about getting BC?
