Boobs (or breasts) are an important part of a woman’s body. Despite its importance, it is also one of the least understood and often most ignored body parts of the body. And when it comes to signs related to diseases associated with boobs, lack of knowledge can often lead to the ignorance of critical symptoms that can help in diagnosing a disease early. Likewise, this lack of knowledge can also lead to the confusion regarding something that could be relatively normal.
So, here is a list of 13 things that every 20-something girl should know about breasts:
1) Is one bigger than the other?
Welcome to the world of biases. If you have been staring at the mirror for long only to realise that one of your boobs is bigger than the other then don’t panic, you’re no exception. It’s perfectly normal.
2) Wanna make it bigger naturally?
Everyone seems to be dissatisfied with what they have. If you have small breasts and you want a size bigger, there’s no way of doing it other than cosmetic surgery (no, you can’t go green!).
3) Why breasts sag?
Time for a quick biology lesson. When you’re young, your breasts are made up of fats and milk glands. But after a certain age (when you’re old), your breasts store fats and hence they sag.
4) Got a random hair near the nipple?
Well, a couple of random hair near the nipple is not unusual. It could be a simple sign of hormonal imbalance. However, if there’s a jungle out there, you know what to do?
5) The period pain!
Menstruation can cause crazy changes in your body. While back pain and pain in the pelvic region is common, periods can also cause pain in the breasts. Apart from that, trauma and lumps can also cause pain in the breasts.
6) Non-cancerous lumps– possible?
While it is advisable to get your breasts checked if you feel a lump. It is possible that it is non-cancerous and benign.
7) Boob pain?
Do your boobs hurt all the time? Are you worried? Well, don’t panic just yet. Painful boobs can be caused by hormonal imbalance or by improper bra size.
8) Is there a way of making boobs look perky?
The easiest way of making your boobs pep up are using lifting bras and pectoral exercise. But beware, this will only change the underlying muscle, not the size.
9) Are pimples/blackheads on boobs normal?
Blackheads can grow anywhere and your boobs are no exception to this rule. Even an ingrown hair follicle can cause a black head. However, if bleeds, get it checked.
10) Is greenish-red discharge from nipples normal?
NO. If your nipples are discharging anything that looks green or red, get it checked immediately.
11) Is is normal to have larger areolae?
Boobs (all of it), come in various shapes, sizes, colours, and proportions. There is no common definition and it varies from body to body.
12) Breasts can help you lose weight!
But there’s a trick. Lactating mothers can lose weight by breast feeding for up to six months. Who said, weight loss was a task?
13) The turn-on trick!
Studies suggest that over 80 percent women get turned on by slightest manipulation of their breasts. So, now you know the trick.
