Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, are my boobs normal?"

Dear Carol,
For about six months now, I've been noticing these little brown patches on my right breast. They aren't accompanied by any other symptoms like itching. I don't know what could have caused them, and I'm too embarrassed to ask my mom or the doctor. I figure since you are always helping out girls with puberty problems, maybe you could help me out, too.
—Breast Question

Dear Breast Question,
Never be embarrassed to ask your doctor anything. Doctors look at bodies the way mechanics look at cars or carpenters look at houses. I'm not a doc so it would be irresponsible of me to say, "No worries," though I'm tempted to make that diagnosis. Can you go ahead and ask your mom or doctor so you can put your worries to rest?
