Excess breast tissue in the armpit.

The tissue in the armpit area is likely simple breast tissue and generally will not cause a problem. Direct excision is the simplest way to remove this if it bothers you from a cosmetic standpoint. There are no home remedies to treat this.

Excess breast tissue in armpits

Axillary breast tissue can be treated by simple direct excision. Other than that, it will not go away.
