Breast Reduction: Large breast can cause significant discomfort and inconvenience. In many cases, breast reduction surgery is the most predictable method available to reduce breast volume and provide an aestheetic breast shape. No surgical methods, such as diet and exercise can help if you are over weight, but for congenitally large breasts, this does not always work.

Lose weight : Breast are mostly fat. Weight loss will lead to smaller breasts. If you are normal weight or have very large breast compared to the rest of your body consider surgical breast reduction.

At times yes...: Fibrocystic breast can have different characteristics- you can feel something that feels like a small "bb", a rock, a pea or just and area of irregular thicness and tenderness. However any new breast finding or change in breast warrants eval by your doctor and possibly mammogram and/or ultrasound. It is important to be assessed- so make an appointment.

Can be helpful: At this time there is much controversy about need for self breast exam. Guidelines recommend against. However, the possibility of you finding a lump or change on your exam can help make a diagnosis of a breast condition- more quickly. Your risk of breast problems should also be a guiding factor. If you are properly taught to do SBE there is no real harm to do them- and may help.
