Can axillary breast tissue be in one armpit? And will it go away if I lose weight. And in detail what is it meant to feel like???

Pretty common. Occurs in about 1 in 20 women. Not likely to go away and often gets larger when breasts do (pregnancy). Losing enough weight to significantly lower total breast size MIGHT have SOME effect. Can be surgically removed; in some centers, a lot of minor complications occurrred. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8585676. Read more...

Why does my breast tissue extend into my armpit? Is this normal?

May be normal. One's doctor can carefully examine the breasts and armpits to see it they feel normal. Breasts normally extend towards the armpits, but if a woman has swelling in her armpit area each time she has a baby and breastfeeds, she might have some extra breast tissue (milk-producing glands) in the armpit area. That would be an "extra" breast, a small lump without an extra nipple. Read more...

Is it normal to have excess breast tissue for five years in only one armpit? I'm 18. It's not noticeable when my arm is raised but is with my arm down

Yes, this happens. Frankly, I wouldn't rush to do anything about it in someone who's body shape is liekly to still be changing with puberty. Often it becomes totally symmetric. Not a health issue, but could be a reason for minor cosmetic surgery. Read more...
