Different colored nipples

Question Posted Tuesday April 8 2008, 7:09 am


Hi, I'm 15 years old, mostly developed. 34C. I have an issue- my nipples are two different colors. I have one breast that it slightly larger than the other, and this one's nipple is about 6 shades lighter than the other. One is reddish/tan and the other one is closer to peach. Is this a bad sign? Can someone please tell me what this is? Thank you

As Amanda is completely normal for one nipple/areola to be slightly larger than the other..In fact, it is this way in almost EVERY woman. Another fact, one arm is longer, one leg is longer, basically one side of your body is slightly bigger than the other!! You've discovered this because it's your breasts, but it's likely that no one else (unless you get in a very long term relationship with a guy that is into breasts *lol*) will even notice.

More importantly, at your age, your breasts (believe it or not) ARE still developing, so the difference may be more pronounced, but that is completely and absolutely NORMAL.

I remember me and my x (of many years) would make jokes about how my right breast is slightly larger..*heh*. It's really a perfect imperfection; one that is really not that noticeable AT ALL.

As a matter of fact, I knew a girl once that went to have her breasts enlarged..the cosmetic surgeon suggested putting more saline in the naturally smaller breast to completely even them out: AHHH! During surgery thy put the extra saline in the wrong breast and she ended up with one breast much larger than the other and was forced to go back into surgery!

As far as the discoloration goes, I can think of two things that might cause the different coloration:

1. Your body is still growing, maybe one breast just hasn't evolved to the stage the other has..


2. It is much like a beauty mark- you just happened to have two different colors. (example: I've known people with two completely different colored eyes)

Has the coloring always been this way?

If you are bothered by the discoloration you could see your doctor just to ease your fears, but I imagine, especially at your age, that it is merely a dermatological issue.

If the discoloration bothers you even after you see a physician (and discover that it is merely a "beauty mark"), there are things you can do to change it (although, all in all, I don't think your partner(s)/boyfriends will care a fig).

But, I would suggest that you wait until your fully developed just to make sure you don't make things worse later:

Later: you can have the coloration changed by using tatooing *OOWW*

and, also, they sell permanent "tints" that you can use to change your breast color. (ppl usually buy these because they prefer not to have darker areolas).

In many women one breast is slightly bigger than the other. So that is completley normal you havent to worry about that. Although about the nipple discoloration I would tell you to go to your gynecologist and see what she thinks about it. Dont worry to much until you hear what the doctor has to say about it.

um i'm not sure what it is, but there are a few things you can do to help :D

~Go to a doctor and get it checked out, it could be serious or it could still be your body changing. (you can ask for a female doctor if you want, they are all very understanding!)
~Go on youtube and watch (and follow) a self-breast-examination, and if you're still suspicious of the results go to the doctors
~Go to [Link](Mouse over link to see full location) her name is Dr. Mel and she is great at telling you proffesional advice (much better than i could) as she specializes in this type of thing ! :D Hope you get it sorted :D
