Lump under armpit

I'm am 18 years old and found a lump under my left armpit about 2 weeks ago and it is sensitive. Should I go and check it out or is it nothing to worry about?

Hi Suki,Yes I think that you should have the lump checked out by your doctor.This is the first thing that we should do when a lump appears anywhere around the breast.At your young age and because the lump is painful..  I don't think that you should be over worried that this lump could be cancer..but it is very important to show it to your doctor who will examine you and tell you for sure if this lump has to be further investigated or not.Please make the appointment okay? so you can stop worrying and have peace of mind.Take care.
