Because u r a woman: Most women have some amount of breast size discrepancy. This is normal and not automatically a problem. Some women have such a big discrepancy that cosmetically, it causes them personal concerns and anxiety. If this is the case, you may wish to consult with your physician to look into treatment options.

Ace-wrapping chest: Binding your breast means taking a long wide cloth and wrapping this around your chest tightly. You could also use a wide ACE wrap. This is done in an effort to soothe the discomfort from engorgement during weaning.

Duct blockage: If you have a very hard area on your breast it may be a duct that is blocked. This can happen if your breast has not emptied fully during/after a feed. Try a warm compress and some Ibuprofen can be helpful as well. Continue breastfeeding/pumping to allow for continued release of milk.
