    I’m going to the doctor tomorrow for her to check one of my breasts as I’m a bit concerned.

    What should I expect?

    I’m also really self conscious about the shape of my boobs and their are some visible veins...

    Just feel so awkward and yeah. Any tips? Has anyone else gone for this?

    Because I’m young I feel like I would get judged more than if I was 40 because young girls are meant to have perfect boobs. HELp please?

    Young girls are not meant to have “perfect boobs”, there is no such thing! I can’t really comment on anything else :/ but just relax and stay calm, the doctors had to deal with loads of people in your situation before so they will make sure you are comfortable so you have nothing to worry about

    They honestly won't care what your breasts look like. They do lots and lots of breast exams and have seen lots of different ones. In the worst case scenario, the doctor will feel better about her own breasts if yours are not perfect lol

    What to expect: You'll need to take your bra off and either remove or lift your shirt. She'll have a look and probably a gentle feel of your breasts. She may also get quite close if she needs to get a better look at anything. You can ask for a chaperone if you like (including somebody you know). If you are uncomfortable at any point just let them know.

    Judgement?: The whole young girls having perfect breasts thing is absolute bs. All boobs are different and that's completely fine. They will have looked at enough that they will a) know that people (even young ones) do not have perfect boobs and b) not give a damn what yours look like.
    All they will care about is if there is anything concerning or medically unusual about your breasts. This is quite unusual and awkward for you, but just another day at the office for them. Your boobs might as well be spreadsheets.
