    I'm 30 years old and I have asymmetric breasts. My whole right side of my body is bigger than my left, including my collar bone, thigh, vagina and stomach. I'm completely petrified of being put under general anaesthetic, so feel I would never be able to get anything done about this. Also, would have to find out about getting in done on NHS as I would never be able to afford it. I can't stand my breasts and hide them from my Husband and am so paranoid of people knowing they are so different in size. It makes me feel disgusting. Can anyone advise on what I can do?

    hey I'm 20 and my breasts, labia and legs are all bigger on one side than the other. i recently got surgery on my breasts to sort them out and it's the best decision i've ever made. talk to your doctor about it if it's destroying your confidence then you should be able to get it done on the nhs. ii first went to the doctors about it when i was 14 and they told me to come back when i was 16 and again when i was 18 then i got one breast augmented, waited another 9 months and had the second one reduced. they don't look super similar, but cos of the difference in size i don't think that would have been possible any way. but now i feel confident in clothes and i know that the scars will fade and i feel a bit better about myself with other guys and stuff. i'm still conscious of it but not nearly as much. i'd love to get labiaplasty too cos it's quite uncomfortable and i don't like how it looks but it's more a private thing that doesn't bother me to the same degree as my breasts did, so i wouldn't ever try to get that sorted on the nhs. as for your husband - if he loved you enough to marry you i'm sure he won't judge a part of your body. i have had relationships with a couple of men adn they've understood my confidence issues and never made any nasty comments about my breasts, so i wouldn't worry about it :)

    I've had an asymmetric mole on my leg for as long as I remember. It kind of look like melted chocolate. I know it's been there for at least 15 years because when I was little my grandma tried to wipe it off because she thought it was chocolate. Is this something to worry about? It's always been that way but obviously asymmetric moles are a sign of malignant melanoma. I have a lot of moles/freckles and I get new ones all the time, I can't always remember what they used to look like, it's really confusing. None of them are really raised or itchy or anything else though.

    Hi, I have asymmetric breasts, one is at least a D and the other can fit into as low as a B bra. It really gets me down but I'm too scared to go and see a doctor. My boyfriend says he doesn't mind, and I trust him enough to take my top off with him but still try to hide under covers and get upset really often about myself. I am 17, due to be 18 in less than a month and really want a solution to my problem as I can't wear low tops without wearing a coat or jacket to cover up. Anything would help me, what can I do?

    Go to your doctor. It is the only way to sort this out unless you are willing to live with it. I went to my doctor and I could barely speak as I was that upset. Id spent 12 years hiding my breasts so showing them to someone was an ordeal. I was refered to the hospital and had to be examined and photos taken - although again I was upset I'm so glad I was brave enough to do it. Im waiting to hear now if the NHS will fund an opereration to correct this, I have one cup B and one D. Your doctor is there to help and sees all sorts everyday, I know its embarrasing but I promise you will feel so much better once youve seen someone about it. I wish you luck but please dont wait til your 30 years old like I have!! x

    I am 16 years old and I know there are a lot of comments about asymmetric boobs. But one of my breasts seems to be about a B cup with a puffy nipple whereas the other one is more like a mans chest, its quite flat and has a very small nipple which permanently looks shrivelled, nothing like this has appeared on the show so I was wondering is this normal?

    Like the majority of you I suffer with asymmetric breasts. It's really embarrassing, I wont wear a bikini, I buy bras to cater for the bigger breast and the other has a considerable gap in the cup. I also have bad stretch marks on the larger one and fewer on the smaller one. I've contemplated going to the doctors about it, but I feel as if i'm wasting time. Anyone else have the problem with the stretch marks?

    Hi, I have the same problem as everyone else with a slight twist. My left breast is not only a cup size or two smaller than my right, its a little strange. It appears to have only developed on the top left side, the bottom and right side being quite flat to my chest. This makes it an A cup (sort of) and with my right being a B/C cup and continuing to grow I'm concerned this isn't something as common as the usual asymmetric breasts, and not something which will sort itself out. Doctors have seen it during unrelated surgery and not raised any concerns. Does anyone else have a similar issue?(aged 19, breast development started at 15)

    I'm 15 and have asymmetric breasts. One is C/ D and the other is A/ B. I have had people comment at school and it's really worrying me that other people have noticed. My problem is that not only are they asymmetric, they are an awful and incredibly unusual shape. Is there anything that I can do to help with either or would I be able to get surgery at this age?

    i had Asymmetric Breasts very noticable from the age of about 13, it really bothered me then & got worse as i got older I NEVER let any partner see me naked & went to bed with my bra on , changed the way i sat & what i was wearing just to hide it! I would say 1 of my breasts was at least 2 cup sizes bigger then the other . so at the age of 31. i had a breast implants in both breasts (differnt sizes) & a nipple lift on one side as my nipple sat at different heights..although this has left me with scars around my nipple I am the happiest i have ever been. I even dress more feminine now to. Its not for everyone , but can honestly say its the best thing i have ever done!

    Hi I have just been discharged from hospital after having a operation on my breasts. I have had a 3 cup size difference in my breast since i was around 15/16 years old and i am now 19 years old. Before yesterday i had asymmetric tulip breasts ( My nipples were in the wrong place and breasts pointing downwards). I still have the 3 cup size difference until my next operation. My surgeon thinks it could take 2-3 operations to sort and it is up to me whether i want implants or them reducing. Reading your comments was interesting. I was and still am insecure about my breasts and body. My surgeon said it's a rare problem and not many people stand up and get it sorted because they're too embarrassed. If you have any doubts about your breasts you should get it checked out. Even if it is for your self-esteem the NHS could turn your life around. Hope this helps..

    I'm 16 and I suffer from asymmetric breasts as well. It's conserned me for some time now because I didn't understand why my right breast wasn't growing. It has gotten to the stage now where my left breats is almost a D cup and my right is an A. I hate the way it looks and it makes me feel extremely self conscious. I've tried stuffing my bra but you can still tell that there is something wrong. I thought that I was the only one who had this problem as everyone I've spoken to have normal sized breasts. Is there something I can do to make it look more normal as I am to young to have surgery to correct it.

    Im thirteen and have the same problem. My right is a D but my left is a B. But I had a talk to my doctor and he said once I turn sixteen I can have a procedure to fix them. I'm so happy, once I'm sixteen I can actually wear a bathing suit and not avoid swimming anymore!

    hi Evaleigh and Lynn. As you have noticed, there are a lot of girls with this "problem". The Lynn's idea to correct it is great. I suggest you also Evaleigh. Talk to your parents and with your doctor.They will give you a solution. The corrections exist. SO don't worry. It will be fine. Meanwhile, don't tell that to your friends or others you don't trust too much. Because you are young and they can misunderstand the problem and they can make fun. Love your bodyand stay healthy! :)

    I'm 17 and have very asymmetric breasts, one a DD cup, the other a A :/ I've told my friends I cant afford a holiday as I'm too embarrassed to wear a swim suit! my mum say I should go and see a doctor, but I'm too embarrassed, does anyone feel the same?

    I am 22 and have a less pronounced asymetric breats but still a D/DD and a small B and have always been very upset by it, I told some friends and they just don't understand really but I still went on holiday with my friends for two summers and really hope you do too because you can't let it make you miss out on probably a great holiday. You can hide a little with a padded bikini top and by fiddling around with the tightening of the straps different, even with a halter neck and pulling them, there are a few american websites which sell more heavily padded bikini tops than in England.

    Go to the doctor! I'm 17 and have one a B the other DD. Ive just been referred to a specialist and now waiting for the date of my surgery! I'm so pleased i went so just go for it! I know it's embarrassing, i cried when i went to the doctors about it but im so pleased i did now. :)

    I had the same problem- go and see another Doctor. It is really important that you persist and get the referral you need- the operation is life-changing xx

    I am 18, i visited the doctor about 2 years ago, i think i have asymmetric breasts.. i went for a spray tan for my prom back when i was 16 and my mum noticed my breasts have quite a difference in size. my Right breast Droops, and my left one doesnt at all. it's like it just stopped growing. My doctor agreed with my mum in thinking it's not right but she said come back when i'm 19 to see if there's any difference.. there's not? what should i do? im 19 in under 6 months.. i doubt anything will happen. It is noticable under my clothes, and i have to use tissue to fill my bra on the small boob. ;( it's really embarrasing

    Recently I saw an episode where a girl with asymmetric breasts had lipotransfer to even them up. I have the same problem, but have searched online to fine a surgeon who carries out this proccedure and can't find one anywhere in the uk. Please can you let me know where it was that you sent this girl? Thank you SO much!

    I'm 23 and i suffered asymmetric breasts since i was 13. At first i didnt think much of it as i assumed it would change but it never did. I never told anyone about my breasts. Not even my mum. I was very distressed especially in the summer as i could not swim without wearing a t-shirt. By the time i was 20 the depression of it became too much for me to handle and i eventually told my parents. The left breast was an A cup and the right a D. It did feel like a weight had been lifted when i told them and i decided on having the right breast reduced. It was a quick opperation and i was up and about within a few days. Dont be embarassed to tell someone about ur breasts. Keeping it bottled up will do more harm than good. I would strongly recomend surgery to anyone who is as distressed as i was. If i had of mentioned it to someone sooner, i could have had the surgery a lot earlier. Chin up girls, this can be done on the NHS and is a simple procedure!!
