Abstract
Polymastia is a term that is used to describe the presence of more than two breasts in human beings. It is synonymous with supernumerary or accessory breast tissue. Ectopic breast tissue (EBT) may occur anywhere along the primitive embryonic milk lines, which extend from the axilla to the groin, and may occur unilaterally or bilaterally. In the EBT any disease can develop that affects the normal breast, including fibroadenoma. We report a very unusual case of fibroadenoma in axilla of a young male.
Keywords:  Fibroadenoma, Axilla, Ectopic breast tissue, Male patient.
