    What do you mean by bigger?

    Is there a growth, a lump and is it just a slight difference from the other side?

    if there is no pain you don't remember ever injuring it and doesn't prohibit you from doing your daily activities I wouldn't worry about it.

    We all have slight to moderate differences from one side to the other.

      It either could be muscles in one side are spasming and therefore look bigger, or maybe it is just how your body grew. A lot of us tend to have one half different sized- My entire left side is different sized than my right. One of my breasts is larger one of my feet is half sized larger, one of my arms is stronger and noticeably bigger too etc. If really concerned might wish to just ask a Dr for peace of mind however.
