Breast size Disorder

Most of the Iranian ladies complain about the size of their breasts. Some general explanation is necessary before considering the reasons and the possible treatments for the disorder.First of all it should be said that the size of the breast has no connection with breast cancer and ladies should be sure about this. Secondly, the size of the breast is not necessarily leading to hormonal disorders and they are not considered patients due to this. So breast size must not create any worry at all.But the issue our society has is the cosmetic issues and of course some Skeletal-muscular dysfunctions that can occur due to the large breast size. Issues regarding beauty are directly related to mental condition and being worried about the small or large sizes of the breast can annoy Iranian Girls and women.

  • Breast glandular tissue: which is directly connected to pituitary and ovarian hormones like growth hormone, ovary and thyroid stimulating hormones, prolactin, estrogen and progesterone.
  • Breast adipose tissue: which is directly connected to nutritional issues.
  • Breast muscular tissue: which is located below the breasts and causes the forms of the breasts and is related to the extent of doing exercise and blood flow to the muscle.
