The Cause Of Not Enlarging Breasts Even Though I Am Obese?
Hi I am 14 years old. My breasts are not enlarged, but they are like elementary school children. Where my friend has matured, mine is still very small. Even though I can be considered obese, I weigh 62kg and I’m 155cm tall. Am I breast hypoplasia? Doesn’t breast hypoplasia only occur in thin women? Then what is hereditary breast hypoplasia? I also do not have the small breast gene. Please answer, thank you.
Hello, good afternoon...
Breasts begin to grow when a person enters puberty. The growth of the breasts is influenced by the growth hormone and the hormone estrogen, which increases at puberty. Puberty in each girl is different, the average is 10 years-14 years. In addition to breast growth, puberty is also marked by the growth of armpit hair or kemalua, widening of the pelvis, and the development of acne on the face. Breast growth at puberty starts from the area around the nipple first, and it may be that one breast grows earlier than the other. It could be that your puberty period has come and your breasts have started to form, but they haven't grown significantly in size and are just focusing on the nipple area, so you haven't noticed. So, what you experience can actually be a normal thing ... considering that you are currently only 14 years old. No need to worry too much and then compare with your friends, because as mentioned above, puberty and breast growth in each girl is different :)
If your breasts don't increase in size, this may indicate a medical condition, one of which is a growth hormone disorder. Regarding breast hypoplasia, it can be a congenital condition (congenital) or acquired after the child is born. The causes can include growth disturbance syndromes, chest wall deformities, history of exposure to radiation to the breast as a child, history of surgery in the breast area as a child, history of experiencing burns to the chest during childhood, and some drugs, although most of the cause is not known with certainty (idiopathic). If as you get older your breasts have not increased in size or you feel very worried, then you can check with your pediatrician or obstetrician directly. Meanwhile, do regular exercise, avoid junk-food and fast-food, and consume more nutritious foods.
That's all, hope it helps.
