Thanks for your query
First of all I wish to know how do you say it is a lymph collection. A lymph collection in axilla occurs only after a breast cancer surgery and axillary dissection. What looks like is that you have either excess fat in the axilla causing a bulge or an accessory breast. You do not require a surgery and it has nothing to do with breast cancer. You may consult a surgeon.
