What is Axillary Breast Lump?

Also known as an armpit lump or underarm lump, an axillary breast lump is the growth of lymph nodes, fat tissues, or breast glandular tissues in the axilla (underarm). This tissue growth can be temporary or long-lasting depending on the cause. In the beginning, the lump only affects the aesthetic of the person but over time, the lump may also start to cause pain and irritation.

If you have excess tissues in the axilla and want to get rid of them, you can rely on Pristyn Care doctors. We employ the minimally invasive liposuction technique to remove the fat tissues and the minimal excision technique to remove the glandular tissues and lymph nodes. To learn more about axillary breast tissue treatment, you can talk to our medical coordinators.

    Steps Involved in Treatment of Axillary Breast

    Diagnosis – Axillary Breast Treatment

    The doctor performs a physical examination on the patient to analyze the tissues present under the arm. The anisotropy (tissue stiffness) and hypertrophy (tissue thickness) are checked to determine the type of tissue in the lump.

    For further analysis, the doctor recommends the following tests-

    • Ultrasound- This test helps to identify the structure of the underarm lump and abnormalities in the tissues (if any).
    • Mammogram- This test is recommended to rule out the possibility of breast cancer.

    Axillary Breast Treatment Procedure

    To remove the lump under the arm, Pristyn Care doctors leverage liposuction and excision techniques. The procedure is carried out in the following steps-

    • First, anesthesia will be administered to the patient. Usually, general anesthesia is used for the surgery. But in some cases, local anesthesia may be used.
    • The surgeon will mark the location of the incision and insert the liposuction needle in the target area. If laser liposuction is being used, then the surgeon will insert the laser fiber in the target area.
    • The fat in the underarm is broken down and extracted using a suction device.
    • If it is the breast glandular tissues that have reached the underarm region, the surgeon will use a scalpel or laser to excise the tissues through a 3-4 cm incision.
    • The incision will be closed with the help of stitches or surgical glue.

    The entire procedure takes around 45 minutes to 1-hour maximum. The patient is discharged on the same day after the procedure.

    The best way to get rid of an underarm lump depends on its cause. If the lump is caused due to lipoma, it can be treated with steroids, liposuction, or excision surgery. If the lump is axillary breast tissue, it will need surgical removal. Thus, the ideal way is determined by the doctor after an accurate diagnosis.

    What type of anesthesia is used during axillaplasty?

    Typically, general anesthesia is used during axillaplasty. With general anesthesia, the surgical site will become numb and the patient will fall asleep. The effects of anesthesia will last for a few hours.
