14years old healthy girl with her right breast at Tanner stage4 ,her left breast is at Tanner stage 1,how this could be explained_?
Expert Answer :
Asymmetrical breast development is commonly seen during puberty. Reassurance is given that the asymmetry usually evens out by the time of full maturation. Even at maturity, breasts are rarely 100 percent symmetrical, so minor degrees of asymmetry are expected. Because the breasts are continuing to grow and change, surgical intervention for asymmetric breasts is generally delayed until after age 18. Rule out a breast mass.
