1. IS THE LEFT BREAST BIGGER THAN THE RIGHT BREAST?
You might have noticed that your breasts are of different sizes, shapes, or positions— This is called breast asymmetry. Breast asymmetry is often no cause for concern. It is normal and common in over 50% of women worldwide. Although most people know that one of their breasts is bigger than the other, they don’t realize that the left breast is the bigger one. The reason for this is uncertain but mostly attributed to how breast tissues react to sex hormones like estrogen. Breast asymmetry can be noticed right from puberty. Although not common, it is normal for the right breast to supersede the left one in size.
IS BREAST ASYMMETRY A SIGN OF CANCER?
Don’t get me wrong, breast asymmetry can be a sign of breast cancer, but only when the disparities are too obvious. You should visit your doctor for testing and assessment if one breast is over 20% bigger than the other.
