solutions for large breast

Oftentimes you will hear about those people who are interested in enlarging their breasts because they are not happy with the size but many times you do not hear about the other end of the spectrum. There are people that have overly large breasts and with that, comes baggage – which could be bad and good. Overly large breasts can lead to more serious health concerns though which will be discussed briefly.

Different Areas Affect by Large Breasts

Skin Irritation/rashes may occur when people have overly large breasts because of sweat and excessive rubbing of the skin on skin contact. Back, neck and muscle pain can be caused as well as numbness in fingers. Shortness of breath is often an issue and it may be difficult for a person to partake in physical activities due to their large breast size. It could become painful and just unenjoyable which people tend to try to avoid. Additionally, shoulder grooves can occur when a bra is not properly supporting the breasts. The larger one’s breasts are, the heavier they will be which puts a lot of extra strain on the upper part of the body.

Speak with Your Physician About Reduction Options

If you know anyone with overly large breasts or you have them yourself, you will know exactly all of the pain, pressure, and feelings associated first hand. It might be time to consider a breast reduction procedure.  It can be embarrassing to some because of the attention from others or the breasts can just start to hinder their quality of life. There is no valid reasoning to have to be unhappy or unable to partake in activities that you enjoy doing because of breast size. There are many options to help minimize pain and pressure that the overly large breasts are causing and this is something that should be discussed with your plastic surgeon or  physician.

Why Some Women Experience Breast Pain

Why Some Women Experience Breast Pain

Many women will experience breast pain throughout their lifetime, it is normal, although it is not something that should be ignored. While some may automatically assume that something is severely wrong – others may let things slide; this stems from the lack of proper knowledge about what could be happening.

During menstrual cycles, it is very common for women to experience some breast pain and tenderness.

Why Some Women Experience Breast Pain

This is caused by hormonal levels being unbalanced. Unbalanced hormones generally occur when women are pre-menstrual, premenopausal, during pregnancy and with PMS. When the breast pain is not cyclical – other issues that are not hormonal could cause it. The medical terminology for breast pain is mastalgia, which covers but is not limited to the following:

Typical Breast Pain Symptoms

  • Lumpiness
  • Tenderness
  • Tightness
  • Itchiness
  • Dullness
  • Aching
  • Soreness

These symptoms are the cyclical symptoms. Since all women are different and handle pain differently, they may not experience all of the symptoms listed or perhaps they do. It is not uncommon for some women to experience pain in one breast and not the other.

In regards to non-cyclical symptoms, possible reasons could be but are not limited to:

  • Breast Cysts/Trauma
  • Stress
  • Breast Size
  • Cholesterol or medications
  • Mastitis
  • Antidepressants
  • Alcohol Intake

Common Breast Pain Causes

The most common cause for breast pain is in fact hormonal imbalances and many women between the ages of 25-50 experience it regularly. It is imperative to understand that this is usually estrogen levels being thrown off rather than a sign for cancer. These types of pain are easily treatable and it may be as simple as getting a little more exercise and implementing breathing techniques into your daily routine. Water level intake is important just for optimal health reasons and it will help regulate salt level intake as well within the body. If for some reason you are experiencing persistent, non-cyclical breast pain, it is safer to visit with your physician and discuss what the root cause could be.
