    A part of breast tissues leads into the armpit. Armpits have lymph glands called as lymph nodes

    Lymph is a clear fluid that flows through the arteries of the body, circulates via the tissues to make them free of harmful substances, and then drains away through the lymphatic system.

    While flowing via the arteries (they carry fresh blood and carries oxygen and other nutrients to all parts of the body). They are also present in the breasts. Used blood the breasts through the veins and is pumped back to the heart and lungs to be restored. Lymph must also be restored and recycled. Lymph drains away from your breasts through the lymphatic system.
