Recently, photos uploaded by the official Facebook page of “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” have gone viral online. According to the post, a woman named Jonalyne has a very sensitive condition which caused her breasts to grow unusually large, much to the surprise of many netizens.
According to an article from Live Strong, large breasts may caused by genetics, hormonal changes, or medicinal substances.
Jonalyne, however, believes that her condition was brought about by her consecutive pregnancies. While no further information was provided, the woman’s photos were more than enough to start a discussion online.
One netizen suggested that Jonalyne might have fibroadenomas. The website Mayo Clinic tells us that these are “solid, noncancerous breast lumps that occur most often in women between the ages of 15 and 35.”
Further research also suggests the possibility that the condition may be gigantomastia, or breast hypertrophy.
According to Healthline, gigantomastia is a “rare condition which causes excessive growth of the female breasts.”
There are four types of this medical condition: pregnancy-induced, juvenile, medication-induced, and idiopathic.
While its exact causes are unknown, the website states that the breast hypertrophy usually occurs during puberty, pregnancy, or after taking certain medications (e.g. D-penicillamine, bucillamine, neothetazone, cyplosporine, etc.). It also affects only women, and never men.
Symptoms of breast hypertrophy include breast pain, pain in the shoulders, back, and neck, poor posture, loss of nipple sensation, and infections, among others.
Netizens, of course, shared their own thoughts in the comments section.
Some believed that Jonalyne’s large chest was due to the formation of cysts or cancerous lumps:
Others suggested that trapped breastmilk brought about the condition, thereby causing an unusual enlargement in Jonalyne’s mammary glands.
Meanwhile, some netizens also shared the similar experiences that they have had in the past:
Here are other comments from netizens:
As of writing, it remains unclear what Jonalyne’s medical condition is.
