I'm 14 years old, never pregnant, a virgin, had my period for about 2 years, I'm a 36C. Both of my areoles are very large, about 2 1/2 inches wide. I'm very uncomfortable with my areola. Is there a reason they are like this? Is it normal? Is it cancerous? Is there a possible way that they can go to a normal size? I am extremely insecure about this.
Why is my Areola So Large?

Concerned about large areolas in a 14 year old
After you have stopped growing, if you still dislike the size of your areola it is possible to reduce them. Seek a board certified plastic surgeon who can help you with a "donut" mastopexy.
A large areola can easily be reduced. This is an outpatient procedure, and sometimes done in an office setting. Since you are very young, discuss this with your parents, and see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) to discuss your concerns and expectations.
