Hello. I am a 22 year old female who has been experiencing a swollen left breast with on and off pain for about a year. I went to get it checked by a doctor last summer, and she said it is natural for one breast to be bigger then the other and that it may have to do with hormonal imbalance. She then told me to take Primrose oil pills to see is that decreases the swelling. The swelling seemed to go down a bit but then it comes back out of no where. She also told me to wear a supportive bra to bed to ease the pressure which I do every night now. On a side note, I am not pregnant. And the pain seems to come in after my period most times. There is no red rash, lumps, or swollen lymph nodes that I can see/feel. The doctor found nothing as well. Any ideas? Any one else have this problem?

It feels like everything in my left breast is enlarged in comparison to my right.
