The young girl from Sierra Leone apparently revealed that her breasts started growing bigger sometime last year after she accompanied her grandmother and a few women to fish somewhere in Segbwema, Sierra Leone.

Her condition is however something that has been witnessed before.  It is a rare medical condition of the breast connective tissues. The indication is a breast weight that exceeds approximately 3% of the total body weight.

Having a small body, the girl was helped out by well wishers who paid for her breast reduction surgery and according to a Nigerian tabloid the young girl is currently doing much better with normal sized boobs.
