[Giveaway] Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Interesting Facts About Breasts

 


HopeCup

 


October is Breast Cancer Awareness month – you may have seen tons of pink recently. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, let’s talk about breasts. Here’s a few interesting facts about breasts you may or may not have known. Make sure you scroll all the way down to the bottom for a special surprise!

Breasts Come in Many Different Sizes
You may even notice different sizes between your own two breasts. It’s not uncommon for one breast to be larger than the other. Some women experience whole cup size differences between their breasts.

Varying Reactions to Sensations
In addition to the difference in sizes, you may experience sensations differently. Some women have very sensitive breasts, other women have a very high threshold for touch, temperature, and even pain. Many women experience breast tenderness around the time of menstruation or during PMS.

In and Out – Different Nipples
Do your nipples point outward? How about inward? Both are normal. Some women (and men) have inverted nipples and this is normal, just like having an outtie belly button is also pretty common.

Even Your Areolas May Be Different
Areolas range in size, shape, and color. Some women have very little areola and larger nipples while other women may have small nipples and very dark and large areolas. Your areaolas may even darken due to pregnancy.

Make Sure You’re Getting Regular Breast Examines
With all the differences listed above, there’s one very important thing to note. If your breasts suddenly change in size, shape, color, or even texture – it’s important to be aware of these changes. Not only should you regularly visit your doctor for breast exams (and mammograms if needed), you should also fully inspect and give yourself regular breast examines. For tips on how to do so, visit NationalBreastCancer.org.
