The present case highlights the importance of history taking in solving the dilemmas of variant F-18 FDG uptake on PET/CT. Asymmetrically increased, abnormal looking, FDG uptake in the right breast of our patient was related to her breast feeding practice.

This resulted in asymmetry of size, increase in glandular breast parenchyma and FDG uptake in the breast that was suckled.
