Long past puberty, hormonal fluctuations continue to drive changes in the breasts. 

It’s pretty common for breasts to be uneven by up to a cup size, and more than half of us have some variation in breast size.

Normal changes that you see in your breast size do not put you at any increased risk of breast cancer. You should, however, follow the recommendations for breast cancer screening for women of your age and family history.
