Hello ulfi fitriani, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The shape of the breast, including the shape of the nipple and the areaola (the dark area around the nipple) can vary from woman to woman. In any woman, the shape of her breasts can be different from the right to the left.


The areola can be light to dark pink, reddish, light brown to dark brown, or more blackish. The size of the areola can also vary from small to large, the shape of the areola also varies from round, oval, or irregular. The areola surface is generally bumpy. These lumps are called Montgomery glands which have the function of lubricating the areola so it doesn't dry out and crack. Sometimes on the surface of the areola can also grow hair, this is also a normal thing. The color, size, and shape of the areola can change during pregnancy and lactation.


The condition of the areola shape that is not the same right as left as you have is most likely a normal condition, because the shape of the areola can indeed have such variations. Some of the abnormal findings in the breast that you can see:

there is a lump in the breast
discharge from the nipple without stimulation to the breast, especially when accompanied by blood
there is a change in the surface of the breast skin to become thick and large porous like orange peel
severe pain in the breast that is not related to the menstrual cycle or breastfeeding
swelling and redness of the breast

If you have any of the above conditions, you can consult a doctor.

That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
