I never thought it was a big issue until I read about hypoplastic breasts, will this affect me in the future with breast feeding? I used to always think I have more fat in my left one and that's the reason of them being uneven but it seems many other woman have this! I've seen doctors and they said I was just unlucky as all girls have a slight difference and mine was just too obvious
Should This Worry Me? I'm 18, With Uneven Boobs, One A and the Other a C?

Problems with Breast Asymmetry
There is no problem with breast asymmetry, even if the cause is hypoplasia or Poland's Syndrome unless it is bothersome to you. If it does bother you, it can be corrected no matter what the cause.
Mostly all the time is not associated with big problems in the future related with breast feeeding , the most are in phsicological area , and some discomfort or difficulty with close .
Ounce the problem bothers you asthetically then it is the time to make the decision of having a plastic surgeon to correct the deformity . I do not know much about your case , but specifically at the moment of your decision it will be a breast augmentation with different implants . in some cases there is necesity of treatment of areola to put them at same level or a same size but this will depend on the deformity that is present
The decision to undergo surgery to correct significant breast asymmetry is yours. You only do it if you want it.

It is very common to have breasts that do not match in either size or shape. This should not be an issue with breast feeding. If you are self conscious about an obvious difference, you can consider surgery to help achieve more symmetry.
Breast asymmetry varies in magnitude.
What you describe is an anatomic variant. There is nothing to worry about and if it is aesthetically a significant problem for you can be surgically corrected.
Most women have small differences in the size and shape of their breasts. Your situation may simply be the extreme variation of this, however, without pictures, it is difficult to tell if is is simply normal variation or if something else is going on. Your breasts will change with weight gain/loss, pregnancy, etc., however, without the addition of volume to your smaller side or the elimination of volume on your larger side, it sounds like you will always have this size discrepancy.
If your only concern is breast feeding , i think you shouldn't worry too much . If you have been checked before and there is some glandular tissue in your smaller breast , you might breast feed just fine.
