Axillary Breast cancer is a rare entity accounting for 0.1% to 2% of all breast cancer cases. It is typically composed of poorly differentiated IDC with occasionally areas of squamous or mesenchymal carcinoma. Axillary malignancy is challenging as there are many differential diagnoses that may require careful evaluation process. The reported differential diagnoses are occult breast carcinoma, accessory breast cancer, axillary tail breast cancer, and lymphoma or non-breast metastatic lymphadenopathy. We report two cases with similar clinical and histological presentations despite the age difference. Standard radiological and histopathological evaluations were employed to reach the diagnosis of IDC of the axillary tail.
