They may be accessory breasts/breast tissues. They may have been stimulated to produce milk. You can try putting cold packs over the areas to try to reduce milk production from the armpit. Don’t stimulate those areas (eg. Massage/warm packs) as milk production may then increase and you’ll have more swelling/pain. You may want to consider seeing a breast specialist if this troubles you a lot

My wife had it too. Now baby 3mth old she been breastfeeding, no more lump under both armpits. Breast tissue extents to under armpit so that can be filled milk sacs. If worry, check with the gynae when you see him/her
