Changes in breast size. Please advise.

Someone please advise me because I am very worried. My breasts have always been slightly different sizes, as I believe is normal. In the last week I have noticed that one seems to have got bigger. I asked my husband and he agreed with me. I can't feel any lumps in it but a close family member died of breast cancer a few years ago so I am very worried.

If you are really worried the only that will stop you worrying is a trip to the gp but changes in breast size is totally normal and could be anything slight weight gain you haven't noticed anywhere else, raging hormones, pregnancy?,cysts.

It is more than likely absolutely nothing at all to worry about.

Yes please get it checked. I had BC and the first sign I had was a change in shape. This happened long before I could feel the lump. I wish I'd had it checked at that early stage then perhaps I wouldn't have needed a mastectomy and 5 months of chemo. Don't be afraid. If it's cancer, early intervention is the key.
