  • I think it is common that one breast is always larger then the other. It could also be Breast Infection Mastitis I had this and it made my breast swell and hurt really bad then it got really bad my fever went to 105, and I had to be hospitalized for 2 weeks because the infection was spreading to my lungs and heart. Most times this happened in breastfeeding moms but I got it when I wasnt even pregnant it was from a nipple pericing gone wrong. Here is a link for more information on it.
