Hello and welcome to EHF

I went through your query and i understand your concern. If thoracic outlet syndrome is due to your large breasts then surgery may it helps. Otherwise, it can be treated noninvasively with stretching and physical therapy , which relieves the impingement on nerves and vessels. It can also be treated medically, however if symptoms persists then surgery may be the option.
