I have this also. Told that it is mammalary tissue. I have gained and lost weight with no change to the swelling. But, when I gave birth to my son the area filled with milk also and it looked like golf ball under my armpits...very painful. So I believe the breast tissue thing but I don't want that under my arm it is ugly and I cannot wear shirts that show that area because it looks awful.
