Hi Joy and welcome to the BCC forums

Whilst you await replies I am posting a link to our breast health publication which you may find useful to read, you can do so via this link:*/changeTemplate/PublicationDisplay/publicationId/40/

Take care

Hi Joy, here’s some information from our nursing team for you:

Thank you for your posting on the Breast Cancer Care forum. I understand that you have one child you have been breast feeding for twenty one months and that you have now stopped, but your breasts have not returned to their normal size.

After pregnancy your breasts probably won’t look or feel the same as they used to. You may have put on weight. It is not unusual to find your breasts have altered in size and shape compared with before pregnancy. You may want to look at our booklet “Breast changes during and after pregnancy”. See link below.

At Breast Cancer Care, we encourage all women to be breast aware. This means knowing what your breasts look and feel like normally and reporting any new changes to your doctor.

With best wishes
Breast Cancer Care nursing team
