9 Common Questions About Your Breasts Answered

It’s normal to have questions about your breasts and wonder if their size, shape, or appearance is normal. Rest assured, there are many different types of breasts and nipples, and they are all perfectly normal. Here are some common questions about breasts, answered:

  1. What should I do about hairy nipples?

It’s common to have some hairs around your nipples, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. You can remove them with tweezers or scissors if you want, but having hair around your nipples is normal and not a sign of a problem.

  1. Is it normal for one breast to be larger than the other?

Yes, it’s totally normal for breasts to be different sizes, especially during puberty. They may even out over time, but they will likely never be exactly the same size. If there’s a noticeable difference, you can try a padded bra, but if it’s more than a cup size difference, it’s a good idea to see a doctor.

  1. What if my nipples are large?

Nipples come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no standard size or shape. Just embrace what you have, as every girl’s nipples are different.

  1. What if my breasts are small?

Breast size varies from person to person, and having small breasts is perfectly normal. Don’t waste time worrying about how your breasts measure up to others.

  1. Is it normal for my breasts to get sore sometimes?

Yes, it’s normal for breasts to get sore during puberty or before your period. Try a cool compress to ease any discomfort. If the soreness doesn’t go away or is accompanied by sharp pains, see a doctor.

  1. What if my breasts feel lumpy?

Most girls get lumps in their breasts occasionally due to hormonal fluctuations or natural changes in breast tissue. Cysts are also common and usually come and go naturally. If a lump hurts, makes your skin pucker, or won’t go away, see a doctor.

  1. What if my nipples are dark?

Nipple color varies from person to person, and it’s all dependent on your genes. Smooth or wrinkly nipples are also normal.

  1. What if my nipples are inverted?

Inverted nipples are a common variation and are perfectly normal. If you notice any discharge or a change in your nipples, see a doctor.

  1. What are the bumps on my nipples?

The bumps you see on your areolae are just little glands that secrete oil to keep your nipples from getting chapped when breastfeeding.
