I have a very sore lump under my arm?

It is not very big, but very painful, it is on the top side of my armpit? I want to know if it is necessary to go to a doctor?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

I do think it's a good idea to see a doctor due to the pain. 

It may be a cyst (probably harmless) or swollen glands (have you had a virus lately?) but if if the lump doesn't subside in the next couple of days, please see your doctor. 

Will you keep us posted? I'm interested as to what this may be-
