Hello doctor... My Left side breast is bigger than right...there are no lumps, no pain, no discharge,  it looks connected to under arm fat.....wht it ?

Normal: One breast is normally always bigger than the other after development as Mother Nature never gets it exactly even. The breasts have an "axillary tail" that runs into the arm pit normally and is connected by a ligament called Cooper's, thus the term" Cooper's droop" for sagging breasts later in life. ...Read more
