|12/30/2011||Is my right breast normal?|
My mum and my boyfriend say it is normal. My left breast is noticeably larger, heavy than the right breast and it is painful. The right breast had a tiny pimple it grew and then it healed but when i press it feels like something hard. Today i noticed there is another small pimple growing next to it and the skin on the breast has dark patches which sometimes feel itchy. Is there something wrong with me?please help. Thank you
