shrinking breast

Hi,
I am post menopausal, my left breast is shrinking and I have recently started to feel nauseous.  What could this all mean?

I don't know but if it were me I'd make an appointment with my Doctor.

Drooping would be normal, not shrinking.

Best wishes.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

If it is dimpling of the skin, it is a sign of something pulling on breast tissue. This could be due to a tumor, benign or malignant and sometimes due to a cyst.  Only a consultation with your primary care physician can help diagnose. He may ask for a mammogram to detect any lesions.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
