Hi everyone. Though this topic isn’t really about vaginas, I hope it’s okay to post it here. I’m really hoping you guys might be able to ease my mind, or at least push me in the right direction.

Last night, I noticed that there is a dent at the top of my right breast, kind of where my breast “ends” and it just becomes the normal sternum area, almost to my armpit. My breasts are on the saggier side so there is some downward stretching of the skin there, then the actual round breast part fills out.

I just turned 25 a few weeks ago, and I’m freaking out a little because all the googling I’ve done about breast dents are either about botched breast augmentation (haven’t done it) or cancer. I took a few pictures… here’s a link to my flikr photo stream that I created for the 3 breast pictures. I’ve cropped out my nip but it’s probably still NSFW.

I’ve lost about 30 pounds over the past couple months, and I know that my breasts have shrunk a bit. I don’t know, though, that this is related to that. Does anybody have any insight to offer about this situation? I am very reluctant to go to the doctor because I have a $3,000 deductible for health care–barf. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Just a random update in case anyone’s interested… I saw a nurse at Planned Parenthood, and she did a breast exam. She thinks that it is normal, given my recent weight loss. Thanks everyone for your help and reassurance.

    Oops, I thought I fixed that. Hopefully the photos are available now.

    I have that! I mentioned it to my GP and she said it was nothing to worry about, it’s to do with the way the skin stretched, at least in my case.

    Are there any sliding-scale clinics or anything like that you might be able to attend for some peace of mind/reassurance?

    After I made this post, I called and made an appointment with Planned Parenthood, for a breast exam. Thanks for your reassurance, I appreciate it.

    No worries at all, please keep us updated!

    I can see the pictures now. I couldn’t before, so I guess you fixed it!

    As for your question–I’ve got the exact same little dent in my breasts, and they’re about the same size and shape as yours. [Seeing breasts like mine just made me happy about mine, btw~] Anywho, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with what you’re seeing there.

    Boob twin! :D. My biggest concern is that I noticed this pit out of the blue, and I know that “changes” are a red flag. Thanks for your reassurance, though. I hope it relates to my recent weight loss.

    Before I got to the part about your weightloss, I was going to ask if you lost weight.

    When you lose weight, especially quickly, your breasts can become a big saggier and have looser tissue. That could very well be it.

    It really just looks like normal breast wear-and-tear to me.

    Hey there–I lost weight, too, especially through my rib-cage because of weight-training. I noticed the same kind of dents. They are more or less visible at different times of my menstrual cycle because I get bloated and that changes the shape of my boobs, too.

    If you can, though, I’d encourage you to get it checked out. You’re right that sudden changes are a sign of possible problems, so if you are able to do so having a medical professional look at it is a very good plan. (I say this only because my best friend was literally, as in last week, d/xed with cancer. If she hadn’t asked her doc about an abnormality, she wouldn’t have known it was there.) I don’t think you have cancer, but I’d really encourage you to get it looked at.

    Something similar happened to me with weight loss – my breasts didn’t exactly get smaller, but they did change shape some. In my case, I found a breast lump that was actually just a fat nodule but was scary as hell – I hadn’t been able to feel it before.

    I’ve had the same thing for as long as I can remember life with boobs and never once thought there was anything weird about it.

    I personally think it’s just the skin stretching differently due to your weight loss, but the exam at PP can’t hurt. 🙂
