Accessory Breast (Polymastia)
An accessory breast, also known as polymastia, is a congenital abnormality where mammary glands have developed outside the normal chest area. It generally occurs in the armpit area, but it can sometimes be seen under the breast or on the side of the body. Since breast tissues exist in an accessory breast, there may be a change in size, just like an actual breast, according to the menstruation cycle, and there may even be milk secretion during pregnancy. Breast cancer may occur in an accessory breast, albeit rarely, so if you have an accessory breast, it is advisable to seek treatment.
