Sorry, guys, but why is it that for the last few days I keep getting purely medical questions that ought to be sent to Cyberdoc ? Is Cyberdoc on holiday ? From my own knowledge, it is actually common that the two breasts differ in size, though a recent CHANGE in their relative sizes would be of more concern ; and there are various possible causes for discomfort or pain in a breast, some serious and some less so, but either way one ought to visit the GP for a proper checkup

When last did you self examine your breast checking for any lump. If you are older that 40, its advisable to have a mammogram every year.

Perhaps you should post this question to the Gynae or CyberDoc.
