In brief: Yes

The breast normally extends to the clavicle (bone from shoulder to chest) and into the anterior axilla (armpit) laterally.

In brief: Common

Breast tissue normally extends into the lower armpit--we call it the axillary tail of spence.
Like any breast tissue, this is hormonally-responsive and can get quite prominent during pregnancy.
