Accessory Breasts

Though there is a theoretical possibility of accessory breasts developing anywhere on the milk ridge, in reality it is usually a single or a pair that is mostly found in the axilla. Sometimes it may be mistaken for a lymphangioma or even a part of the breast. Liposuction has been tried. However where the fibroglandular component is predominant, excision either open or endoscopic remains the only alternative.
