Maybe somebody can answer me: The first time I got something like macromastia, when I was 16 years old. The breasts were growing very fast from the smallest possible to very large (like P. Anderson), but the nipples stayed small. After 4 years my breast became normal again, but hanging. About 10 years later the whole thing repeated, but this time I was normal again after 16 months. And almost 30 years later it repeated again and now I have troubles with breathing (I have COPD). It must be genetic, my mother had the same problem with 16 years, later, when she was 20 and pregnant with me, she had a normal breast. She died at age of 27, so I do not know, if the disease would behave like mine.
Who can answer me? In my country the doctors, that i have met, had not much experience with cases like mine.
