A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
I have read your query.

I understand your concern.
As per details, it does not seem to be anything serious. Sometimes, after weight gain or swelling in armpit area, the skin gets loosened and does not revert back to original even after swelling is subsided or weight is lost.
You need not to get mammogram done.
Still if in doubt you may go for mammogram to resolve your fear.
You should visit your doctor so that he can examine you and order tests for you.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Stay healthy.
