What Causes Large Breasts?

Breast size tends to have a strong influence over a person’s self-esteem, whether positive or negative. Having overly large breasts, for example, can cause back and neck pain, make it difficult to find clothes that fit well, and draw unwanted attention from others. Those suffering from enlarged breasts often wonder what has caused their large breasts in the first place, and if they have any control over their size. Common reasons that an individual may have overdeveloped breasts include the following:

In most cases having a large breast size cannot be prevented or treated without surgery, due to factors like genetics or hormones. However, by maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet and regular exercise, you can help reduce your risk of experiencing additional growth from weight gain in the future.
