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. The axilla is the most common location for ectopic breast. Fibroadenoma , though commonly occurs in breast, it is rare in ectopic breast tissue. We report a case of fibroadenoma in axillary aceesory breast tissue in a 25 years old nulliparous lady with a clinical diagnosis of axillary lymphadenopathy. Which was diagnosed as fibroadenoma on FNAC.
