Breast problems

  • Breasts are large sweat glands that have become modified to produce milk instead of sweat
  • Even a newborn baby has some basic breast tissue, which started to develop when it was a 6-week-old fetus
  • Newborn babies can have noticeable breasts. This is perfectly normal, and occurs because the mother’s oestrogen hormone has stimulated the baby’s breast tissue. The breast swelling gradually disappears over a few weeks
  • The first bra was invented by New York socialite Mary Jacobs in 1913. She used two hankies and some ribbon, and then patented the idea
  • Tesco, the UK supermarket, couldn’t sell big, fleshy melons. Research by a psychologist suggested that women were subconsciously comparing them with their breasts. So Tesco’s growers have been asked for melons no more than 1lb 3oz in weight, which equates to a C cup (Daily Telegraph 1999)
  • In the 1970s men working in a factory making the contraceptive pill found their breasts were enlarging. Oestrogen was the culprit
  • The number of breast enlargement operations has declined in recent years. In the UK, 8619 were done in 2014, down 23% compared with 2013. In the USA, 286,694 breast augmentation operations were performed in 2014, a fall of 8.5% on the previous year.
  • Breast enlargement is more common than rhinoplasty (nose job). In the UK and USA, 3690 and 145,909 rhinoplasties were carried out, respectively, in 2014.

Im 12 and my breasts are growing to D cup And have biggish stretch marks above my chest to my boobs. And are itchy and feel numb in different places and a little heavy

Hello, not sure if anyone actually responds to these. I've always had small, uneven breasts. A few months ago, I noticed a very large, hard mass in my right breast. My left one is soft and squishy. My youngest son is almost 17, not pregnant, etc. My doctor doesn't seem concerned, but this isn't normal for me. I have all sons, and no family. I work too much, and no time for friends. I've never felt another woman's breast, so I don't know if this normal occurance due to aging? Waiting to be scheduled for a mammogram. I've also noticed that the area between the breast and armpit, is also swollen and sore. The breast lump is almost size of an orange from what I can tell. Noticed when I was laying down, and my right breast was erect, and quite a bit larger than normal. My fiance, whom ive been with almost 4yrs, also says that this is something new for my breast. Is this just hormonal due to aging? I'm pretty worried, as most women in my family have died from leukemia. I've always been a little more paranoid about health issues because of this. Can't just walk up to women and ask if i can palpitate their breasts! Lol The breast mass isn't painful, just huge, seems as if it's gotten bigger over the past several months. I had a tubal ligation, and don't take any birth control, so that can't be a cause. Thank you!

I had had an abortion when I was !*, i.e., 5 years back. After the abortion, my breasts produced milk and my doctor gave me pills to stop the milk. Everything has been normal since, but this morning, while cleaning my nipples, I squeezed it a little and saw a couple of drops of liquid, not milky, but not clear as well. I checked my other nipple and there was another drop, and no more. I had my periods recently and I'm sure that I'm not pregnant. However, I've been jogging regularly lately. It might be just because of the stimulation, but yet, is it something I should worry about? Should I go to the doctor if there is more of such secretions?

Posted by charlotte on 06/05/2015 at 10:48

Posted by Blue Orchid on 04/10/2010 at 01:41

Its hard for women like us who are self concious with our breasts.. Personally the only thing that worked to get a c cup was at, the reshaping still needs to be done but then again I'm not ready for surgery or balloon breasts I just wanted a cup size and a bit of a lift and it was soo worth it :)

Posted by Optional on 11/09/2010 at 11:56

to mklee: Try black salve it its not meant to be there it will take it out though very painfull costs less than surgery and just as safe just keep it overly clean.

i am 22 yr old and sexually active. my problem is that my left and right breast are not equal in size. my left boob is a bit bigger. and moreover the nipples are pointing in diffrent directions... kindly help me out of this.

Posted by Optional on 27/08/2010 at 04:48

When my breats developed they were more like cone shape than round & I didn't have the raised nipple that others did, although they did stand out abit when I was cold. i didn't know there was a problem till I gave birth to my son at 21. The midwives said I had 'flat nipples'. We tried breastfeeding over & over till I was in agony & then they gave me a breast pump to express the precious colostrum you produce for the antibodies. I tried breastfeeding as often as I could but my son just couldn't latch on or stay latched on. The only plus to this was through expressing milk I was able to feed my son breast milk for around 5 weeks. By this point only 1 breast was making much milk & it wasn't enough so I was constantly trying to express. With a heavy heart we moved him onto formula but he DID have 5 weeks of breast milk which is the most important time for a baby. So don't despair if you have this problem. It's not ideal but you can get round it. I have fibrocystic breasts too, not sure if this makes any diff (painful though!) x

Hi, A month ago i took some emergency contraceptives but unfortunately, my menses have delayed with 3 weeks. now i am worried,my breasts are so painful and i feel like vomiting all the time might i be pregnant? and if so is it ectopic? i have all the signs for menstrual periods for 3 weeks as well. What is my problem
