Supernumerary breast or polymastia is a well-documented anomaly of the breast and commonly presents along the embryonic milk line extending between the axilla and groin. Reported incidence of accessory breast is 0.4-6% in females. During 2 years period, we encountered only two cases out of twenty cases of axillary lumps. We present one case of fibroadenoma in ectopic breast tissue (EBT) in axilla. Ectopic breast denotes breast tissue at more than two pectoral regions, which is mostly benign but at times can be malignant. EBT is at a greater risk of malignancy. Fibroadenoma of ectopic axillary breast tissue (EBT) is quiet rare, but should always be kept in mind for differential diagnosis of an axillary mass.
