    Have it checked. It was the first thing my mom noticed prior to her mammogram showing a growth.

      They noticed the asymmetry on my mammo six months ago. I had a sonogram and an MRI as well. I just had a follow-up mammo and they said there's no change. They want me to repeat all three tests in another six months. The asymmetry is nothing...

      They noticed the asymmetry on my mammo six months ago. I had a sonogram and an MRI as well. I just had a follow-up mammo and they said there's no change. They want me to repeat all three tests in another six months. The asymmetry is nothing that I saw on my own. It didn't show up until the testing was done. I didn't have it on previous mammograms, hence my concern.

    If it's new, definitely have it checked. If it's always been that way then it's a normal occurrence. No one has perfect symmetry.
