Normal: Breasts can vary in size including areola. This is the way your body formed. Unless it is disease related: get a breast exam- I would not recommend surgery. In the final analysis- yes it is normal- plastic surgery would be a last resort. ...Read more

A month ago I noticed redness that mainly spread all over my areola on left breast so I got freaked out about IBC I showed my OB and regular Dr who sent me for mammo and US which were clear. The redness is not there now but blue veins are. Cancer?

NO: Unless you have a strong family history of breast cancer, routine imaging with digital mammography and ultrasound should suffice. Blue veins are common, especially in full chested women or nursing women; however, may be a normal variant. Get used to breast self- examination and avoid heavy underwires or push-ups. ...Read more

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females. Your symptoms may be normal, genetic, hormonal or even related to pregnancy. See your Ob or Vein Specialist. ...Read more

I don't have areolas. (Yes I know what it is) I have relatively small breasts 32B and I weigh 125 pounds. I've been the same size since I was 13.

Not a disease: There are many variations on the size of the breast, nipples and areolae. Not having areolae is not a disease and would not affect any physiological function of the breast. I would recommend letting it be.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
