I have large breasts–approximately 42d– for a man. Should I have a mammogram done western mark

Male Mammo: You don't need a mammogram simply because you have large breasts/gynecomastia. However, approx. 1% of breast cancer occurs in men, so if you have a lump or other symptom, see your doctor, a mammo may be appropriate in that situation. ...Read more

Self breast exam: is important so that you become familiar with what is normal for you. It is common, and not abnormal, for one breast to be larger than the other. In some women this is more pronounced than in other women. If you feel something that concerns you when you exam your breasts, you should discuss it with your doctor, or you may ask another question including what you feel that concerns you. ...Read more

Breast looks slightly indented on the side. Could it be fibrous changes? I'm 38. And I have large breast

Breast looks slightly indented on the side. Could it be fibrous changes? I'm 38. And I have large breast

Yes: Any new changes in look or feel can be concerning. Puckering of the skin or lumps should be followed closely, and possibly imaged. Fibrous changes are more often felt than seen. I suggest frequent exams to notice any changes over time. ...Read more

I have had  discomfort/pain in my breast, . It started in one breast but then the other one as well. I have large breasts and very bad menopause.?

Get a Mammogram: It's hard to determine exact cause. It may be due to your hormonal changes during menopause, or die to large breasts. Besides being examined soon you also need to get a mammogram or even a sonogram to help determine possible causes. ...Read more

I have large breasts and I am considering breast reduction. Are there any risks?

I have large breasts and I am considering breast reduction. Are there any risks?

Of course...: Most breast reductions are not done for cosmetic improvement, but rather for symptoms from the size and weight of the breasts (back and shoulder pain, rashes under the breasts.) this is a real operation with possible complications common to all operations. Discuss your specific goals with a surgeon certified by the am. Board of plastic surgery to evaluate your options. ...Read more

I want to get a lift and maybe a small implant. I have large breasts that have always sagged. Do you think it's a good idea?

I want to get a lift and maybe a small implant. I have large breasts that have always sagged. Do you think it's a good idea?

Yes with risks: I think it is a great idea that most women appreciate if you do it for the right reasons and have reasonable expectations and understand the risks, in most instances, a small reduction to remove the hanging breast tissue will be recommended followed by the use of an implant to replace the lost upper breast volume. Discuss with a board certified plastic surgeon. ...Read more

I have large breasts and hips compared to my body and I have facial hair but it's not thick. Is it hormonal?

I have large breasts and hips compared to my body and I have facial hair but it's not thick. Is it hormonal?

Breasts and hips: Has this issue being going on for a long time or has it suddenly appeared? If longstanding I don't think there is much that could be done about your hips but surgical decrease of your breast size could be done. Unlikely to be hormonal but a visit to a gynecologist would be helpful for you. ...Read more

I have large breasts and i've been having a strange pain in one of them. Am I at increased risk of having breast cancer?

I have large breasts and i've been having a strange pain in one of them. Am I at increased risk of having breast cancer?

Probably not: Breast pain, also called mastalgia, is a common problem. Women with large breasts sometimes have strain on the ligaments supporting the breasts which can cause pain. A more supportive bra sometimes helps. If pain persists or your breast becomes red or swollen, you should see a healthcare provider. ...Read more
