    I was amazed to see someone else with this as my daughter has been troublesd with this since that age of two, her dad and most of his siblings have at least one spot but my daughter got more than her share , her arm is now so unsightly with huge blue lumps and very painful especialy in hot weather. All she has been offered is surgery with skin grafts taken from her hip but as her legs are the only areas not affected she does not want to spoil the only normal part of her body.

    My 6 year old daughter has been diagnosed with this condition - it is predominantley on the back of her leg & vulva - at present it isn't causing her any pain - is this something i should be looking out for

    I have a hypoplasia of C1 cervical spine. called a chiari malformation. I am under a neurosurgeon but I am very apprehensive because I am not getting any answers regarding the outcomes or statistics about these type of surgeries. I was diagnosed in 2006 and my condition has detriorated since then - I am in a lot of pain when I do normal daily activities, I have permanent numbness and tingling in my right hand and leg. I am so stressed not knowing how this is going to affect me in the long term if I don't have the operation despite researching about it.

    I just realized I posted a comment instead of asking a question...lol... Okay so I'm 27 and I noticed my left breast puckers on the bottom when I lift my arm up. I did a self exam and I didn't feel anything but I breast feed my son right now so my breast have milk in them constantly. I have pain in my left breast but I just think it's from breast feeding for so long. I've been breast feeding since my first son was born on 2/25/2010 and then his brother was born 11/3/2011. Is the puckering normal?

    All I would do is go to the doctors tell them what you have just said and they will check and then send you for a x-ray. If it is cancerous then it will ome up straight away on the x-ray. So good look x

    I am a 28 year old women. I have had no children. My breast are a 34FF. I am not over weight. I have breast mice which was diagonsed about 6 years ago they told me that i could have the lumps removed. there are 22 in one breast and 21 in the other. I decided that i didnt want surgery at that time. Over the past year i have had a green discharge from my both breasts. I have not seen a breast surgon since i was diagnosed or had them checked. Ive also noticed how sagging they are becomming. I have seen my GP who thought it may be the hormone Prolactine but this test has come back fine. Im now worrid and the Gp has refered me to the breast specialist but said that it could take some time. Can anyone give me advise as this seems very strange and there is cases of breast cancer in the family. I just want to know what is going on and dont want to have to wait for months. Ive tried a breast screaning unit but apparantly im too young for any teast there and have to see my Gp.

    Hi, I was diagnosed with a breast mouse which was removed when I was 17 (I'm 27 now). For the past 2 years I have been having a strange green discharge which is sticky in nature and builds up to a point where it actually hurts and sometimes I have to squeeze my nipple to release the pressure by squeezing the green stuff out. I have had this checked but it still worries me as all my specialist said was that it is probably a damaged milk duct and will clear away on it's own. However she sent me for an ultra sound where the technician said I had "normal" breast tissue and no damage that she could see! I'm getting anxious as my husband and I are talking about trying for a baby and when the time comes I would like to breast feed. If anyone has any advice it would be greatfully received.

    Hi, i do not want to be on tv but i am very embarressed of my breast size, i am not even an A cup breast size and of a women who is nearly 30 this is very embarrassing. I have 2 young children so private breast enlargement is just out of the question. Is there anything else i can do to increase the breast size. I have been to my g.p for advise but they do not seem to have the time for questions in this area and do not seem to take it serious. Thanks

    You need a sympathetic doctor. Breasts are very much hormone driven and I have a full A cup, grown from nothing by using 'Estradiol'(oestrogen pills). Perhaps you need to have a full hormone check, my hormones were low and I developed osteoporosis. So a small bust could be an indicator of something wrong or it could be just a genetic thing, probably the latter.

    i have a sore right breast which gets more tender throughout the day, and i noticed over the weekend(3days ago) that i also had small amount of discharge. I finished my period about a week ago so i know its not because of that and also knoow its not that i'm pregnant. on examining the breast the tissue feels alot firmer at the top of the breast than at the bottom but the whole breast aches and feels heavy?

    I've always wondered if the shape of my breasts was down to malformation and now I know. I've thought for a long time about going to my doctor and trying to get them reshaped on the NHS but I thought they would turn me down. My boobs have always made me self concious and I try to hide them as much as possible so, now that I know it's a malformation, I'm going to go straight to my docs and ask if something can be done about it.

    I've had the same problem as you expect it hurts a lot when I turn my head to my left and sleeping, hurts when I swallow and having trouble breathing, will be going to the doctor to see if they can tell me what's wrong, I'll let you know.. not sure where your from but some places have free clinics you could go to or the hospital is your best bet, they have to see you regardless if you have insurance or not...

    Well what did it end up being

    Hi I am 19 going on 20 and I have had asymmetrical breasts since I started growing breasts. Right now I wear and A cup bra but just recently my left breast (the bigger breast) has gotten a lot notably bigger than my right breast and may even be pushing towards a B cup. So I decided to do a breast enhancement technique on my right breast which is just massaging the breast with a breast enhancer cream or any type of lotion. I am confident that this might get my breast to even out but I just started this technique a few days ago, so I'm anxious to see the result a few weeks from now.

    Hi, My daughter who is 37 has this on her Right Leg from hip to toe which I have searched the internet to find information about it. Last year I found the correct name for this which is "Klippel Trenauny Syndrome" She has had numerous operations from the age of 10 to no avail, she has recently had Nuclear Radioactive dye injected in between her toes on both feet to check her lymphatics. She is having another scan next week, she is in constant pain and keeps falling over. Last year she fell down stairs and broke 3 Metatarsal bones in her foot because her leg keeps giving way, she also has a curved spine because her right leg is a different size to her left leg, all this from birth and no one was able to tell me what was wrong with her leg. If she had been born in America she would have been monitered more thoroughly with this syndrome. Please search on the internet and also Great Ormond Street have someone there you can speak to about it. Hope this helps you.

    I'm 13 years old and I'm flatchested. I have two breast buds however one is more devolped then the other. I'm kinda worried, I got really down one day because of the fact I was flatchested and by this I mean flat like a 4 year old, no buds no nothing, that I went and punched myself in my breast because I really hated it (You can understand why i was in yr 7 at he time), yh so later on one of my nipples began to sweel and wehn the brusing went down i went to the doctor and she said I have a breat bud. However the other breast had n raised lump or anything, so I looked quite deformed in th mirror when only onr noticeable lump was there, so this got me down to so I decided to try and punch my other breast and make a breast bud appear, which it did. But it became several other months before I could say I had a pair of breast buds which by this time the first breast bud was noticeably more developed then the other. This is whats worring me. Will my other breast catch up to the same size breast bud as the other, grow at the same rate and will I have even breasts?

    There is nothing wrong don't worry. Breasts and areola come in all shapes and sizes and can face in any direction. The shape is not affected by virginity or starting sexual activities. At 16 your breasts are still going to be developing and they will change throughout your life, especially if your weight changes. Try not to judge yourself on how the media portrays women. People will love you for you. So embrace your individuality and your confident attitude will shine just like Nicki Minaj.

    I'm 15 and my right breast is GG cup and I would say that my left breast is about an F cup it is so embarrassing I have to get a bra to fit my bigger breast but then my smaller breast is barely filling it I feel so self concious about it is there anything I can do about it? Please take just one minute to answer my question it will make so much different to me thankyou

    you can buy a bra that has push up only at your smaller boob.. by the way, many girls have this problem, it's not as bad as you think :D be happy at least you have boobs unlike some girls your age ( me lol i'm only a B cup )

    I have the same problem as you, except my breasts are an A cup and a DD! I compromise by wearing C size bras so perhaps you could decide to wear a G as a compromise. You could also get a silicone breast enhancer or 'chicken fillet' that you wear in your bra on the smaller side, I have one and it seems to work pretty well. The final solution is surgery and as your breasts are large already this is likely to be a reduction on the larger side. This is not as serious operation as a breast enlargement and so it might be a good option to consider. good luck! by the way, in reply to Samantha who also replied to this post, I would much rather have two B size breasts than breasts that are 4 sizes different! I'm sure you will agree Sophie.

    hi im 15 years old and the brown bit around my nipple is extremly puffy. I check my breasts often enough and when i do this i feel big lumps in my breast, mostly my left breast. Im not sure if this is normal for my breast size at 34a or if its my breast growing.

    Since i can remember i've had one breast larger than the other, it seemed to get more noticeable as time went on. A few months ago i turned 18 and i now have one breast 2 cup sizes bigger than the other. I was wondering if using a breast enhancing cream on the smaller breast would make it the same size as the other one?

    Hi I'm 29 and I have never had what I would call breasts. When I was younger I filled an 32a now I dont even fill a 32aa. My breast seem to be getting smaller, and making me really quite unhappy. My mum has had breast cancer twice, but I really want to have what I can call breast. Im looking to have some surgery on them but can't find any information anywhere that says whether it is ok to have breast enlargement with breast cancer in your family. This is really putting me down and I'm getting quite depressed about it. Please can you help?
