Customer Question

I am a bit worried about a seemingly very light dimple just below the crease of my right armpit. could it mean something serious? when I put up my arm, it disappears. it is only visible when I put down my arm.

hi again, doc. i am having a difficult time uploading a picture. but again both of my nipples look the same, no dripping, no lumps. the seemingly dimple i am referring to is below the crease of my right armpit, not on the front side of my right breasts. i can say it is outside the mound of my breast.

helloAnyway,I understood you are not having with any problem in breast proper.I think the dimple in the armpit or axilla is due to extra deposition of fat.It is physiological, nothing to be done. Try to reduce your body weight.Thank you

hi again, doc. i have actually lost weight in 6 weeks because of purposeful dietary changes (almost 6 weeks of vegetables and fruits, and 30 mins of light jogging on the treadmill). could this also be the reason?
Expert:  DR PRABIR KUMAR DAS replied 1 year ago.
yes quick weight loss or gain may be the cause.But it will be ok after few days.Thank you
