I have two dime size lumps/bumps in my arm pits that appeared after my milk came in. Well, I had one on one side that was there my entire pregnancy that the doctor said looked fine, but was much smaller.

Now I have one in each arm pit and they are about the size of a dime. Is this related to my milk coming in?

I should add that neither one of the lumps hurt. They are a little sore I might say, but definitely not painful or anything.

Are you sure it isnt an enlarged lymph node? Breast tissue does extend up to the shoulder - but i never heard of it extending under the arm pit - it isnt a clogged milk duct , 'ducts' are at the other end of the breast.
