For some patients, breast tissue ends up in places that it isn’t meant to be. Thankfully, there are procedures that can address this issue and restore balance in the body.
What is Ectopic Breast Tissue?
Ectopic breast tissue refers to the presence of breast tissue in locations outside the typical breast area. This condition can manifest in various forms, such as accessory nipples, glandular tissue, or breast-like structures, and often appears in areas such as the armpits, under the breasts, or along the milk line. While ectopic breast tissue is usually benign, it can sometimes cause physical discomfort, pain, and self-esteem issues for those it affects.
