    I'm wondering if my right arm has more muscle mass than my left because of simple, every-day tasks and the fact that I use my right arm to perform those tasks a lot more often than my left. I do masturbate from time to time, but I highly doubt that this is the sole cause for the difference in size. If that is the case, then will using my left arm to do some of my right arm's jobs help close the gap in size difference between my arms?

    its same with me,and the reason is because you use your right arm more than the left. its as if you are building the muscles of the right hand more than that of the left.

    it appears normal to me.

    I have always been ambidextrous, able to do almost all one-handed tasks pretty much equally with either hand. Despite that, my right biceps was always larger than the left, even when I lifted weights, concentrating more effort on the left side. jocular

    Edit: But then, I'm not even close to normal.

    I believe your dominant side is always more developed.

    as in right and left side of body

    just so no one takes this as something else....

    and Jocular..I do half things left and the other half right handed also, but my workout muscles show more definition in my right side.

    and Jocular

    WHAT IS NORMAL?

    My right hand is measurably stronger and slightly larger than my left. When I work out, my right arm doesn't get tired as quickly either. My left begins to shake and struggle while my right has more energy. In fact, I specifically challenge my left arm when I lift weights purely to try to even out what seems to be altered in the day to day.

    At least you're not this guy:
