XP My ectopic boob... — The Bump
TTC after 35

XP My ectopic boob...

Yes, ectopic boob.  Basically extra breast tissue where it isn't supposed to be...under my arm.  I had an appt this am with my breast doctor to get my MRI results(I have the breast cancer gene). My MRI is clear after 3 IVFs (YAY!) but I have this gross extra tissue under my arm on my right side that really bothers me. It's always sore.  I am getting a u/s on Monday to make sure they don't see anything in there but either way, we are going to cut it out. It drives me crazy as you can basically see "boob" under my arm if I wear sleeveless or a bathing suit.  It's been there for years and always annoyed me. In my 20s I always thought it was just fat but is there even when I am thin ( I am not current thin so it is even bigger, lol). Apparently it would become a 3rd boob under my arm if I ever ended up KU!  So, what's another surgery, right??

 I know it sounds strange but I am soo happy for my extra boob to finally have a name and that I can get it removed! I am really a medical nightmare, LOL...

Re: XP My ectopic boob...

  • I hope this doesn't come across the wrong way, but when I started reading about your third boob, all that I could picture was Chandler Bing with his third nipple!  Smile

    I'm sorry for the set back!  ((hugs))

    Married 07/04/10 - Me 40 & DH 46 - Tried conceiving for 2 1/2 years, including IUI, but no luck. Were about to do IVF at the end of 2012, but my body started shutting down. Made the decision to have a hysterectomy in January 2013. Met an amazing little boy in July 2012 that needed a family & decided to move forward with adopting him. He has made our family complete & we are happier than we ever thought that we could be!
  • Linda,

    You are not far off on the 3rd nipple.  The IFV girls also suggested that and in fact, the breast surgeon said that this extra breast tissue could show up in a variety of places on people including the 3rd nipple. Fortunately, my underarm boob doesn't have a nipple:-)

  • I feel your pain, I have the same damn thing in the wedge between my arm and my armpit. Never really thought about it being abnormal until my Dr. pointed it out and told me it was extra breast tissue. Why couldn't the extra tissue be on my actual boob, where I could use a little extra!

  • Accessory breasts (or polymastia, supernumerary breasts) are pretty common and can bud anywhere from your nipple to your pubis along a line known as "the milk line."I prefer the name Accessory Breast because it sounds like a cute new bag or something.

  • I know this is not really funny, but it cracks me up.

    So, are you having a boob-ectomy, a bob-job, a breast reduction? Can they re-route the tissue to a location where it might be more welcome? 

    Accessory breast cracks me up. And yes, I thought of Chandler and his 3rd nipple. It's just a nubbin.

    The real boobs don't get touched at all. It really is breast tissue that is bulging under my arm. They cut it out and sew me back up.  I have enough tissue on my entire body that I don't need any extra, LOL!!

    I'm having the u/s on Monday and then we are going on vacation to Punta Cana 5/9 to 5/16. I would like to get it done the end of May if I can but don't know if the surgical schedule would be full already for that time period. I do want it done before IVF so I may have to push IVF to July? Not sure yet...
