Accessory nipples or supernumerary nipples are a relatively common condition that results in an individual having an extra nipple located on their torso. A quick, noninvasive surgery can be performed to remove extra nipples with minimal pain and recovery time.
Third nipples don't usually need to be removed, but sometimes people wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or if they cause discomfort. Surgical procedures will vary depending on whether or not the third nipple is associated with underlying breast tissue.
