Boobs

One of my nipples is huge


 
This is so embarrassing! One of my nipples is medium sized, but the other one is HUGE! It's practically the size of my whole boob. Is this normal?

Boobs! It seems that all girls are worried that theirs are not quite normal, but the truth is that most need not worry. Bodies are never symmetrical- from our feet to our eyes!

First off, I’m assuming that what you are referring is the areola. The nipple is the tiny part that sticks out and the areola is the colored part surrounding it. Areolas can range in diameter from barely there to the size of the actual breast—there is no normal!

The only way to know for sure if there is a problem is to see a doc. There’s one important question to ask yourself: Has one areola always been significantly larger or has there been a recent, dramatic change in size? Usually it is genetic if your areolas have always been different sizes and that means that there is nothing to worry about. If this has been a recent change, though, it’s a good idea to head to your physician’s office for a check-up, just in case.
