a lump in your armpit that hurts is usually a swollen gland . for example when females shave sometimes it gets irritated and the gland swells for a few days if it doesnt go down within a week i would suggest going to the doctors

If you had a lump under your armpit its cause of the deoderant that was being used to make sure that this does not happin aginuse your own deoderant at all times.

It can also be a swollen lymph node. If it does not resolve soon (especially if it remains painful) or if it grows in size, go see a doctor. It may be nothing (benign), but it could be more.
