pain or swelling
by: Tracy

Hi Carol

Is it swollen or painful? or is the one side just bigger than the other?

WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BREAST?
by: Anonymous

I also have this problem. I have nursed 3 children. After nursing my first child, I noticed one of my breast seemed to be much smaller than the other. I thought it was because my baby preferred one breast to the other and he nursed more on his favorite.

So with my second baby boy I tried to even out my breast by nursing more on the smaller breast. This did not help at all. My breast are still noticeably different sizes.

I have resorted to using breast pads for the smaller breast to even out the breast and fill my bra on one side.

I don't know why this has happened...if it was because of the way I nursed my first born or not.

My new little one prefers the smaller breast. So I give it to her and she is happy. But it would be nice to find out why this has happened and how to fix it.

uneven breasts after breastfeeding
by: Anonymous

There is an uncommon type of breast lump called a galactocele (ga-lac-toe-seel)

This is apparent when some of the ducts have formed a pocket of milk. It may feel like a movable sack inside the breast. The milk will gradually turn into an oily substance. These sacs can be surgically removed after breastfeeding, because they usually fill up again if removed while still breastfeeding.
