Why Is There Another Breast in My Armpit?

Ever wonder why your breast is supposed to be in front of you, but sometimes it ends up in your armpit? Well, there are two reasons why that may be happening.

The first possibility is that your breasts are too large or too wide for your frame. In that case, some of the tissue might end up extending farther out that the side of your body, requiring to be gathered back into your bra every time you get dressed. The other way that this can happen is that you have extra breast tissue that actually lives in your armpit itself. This is not an unusual place for breast tissue to live, but it can become a problem when it makes its own separate mound.

The breast naturally extends to the armpit, but it usually does so as a small thin tail of tissue. In some cases, a separate and large portion of breast can live right in the fold of the axilla, making it impossible to wear clothing or hang your arm comfortably down by your side. Much as with the rest of the breast, sometimes this tissue is mostly fat, sometimes it is mostly gland. Depending on the consistency and amount of tissue and skin, there are several treatment options available to you.
