Hi.
The tender lump on your armpit could be a beginning localized infection like an abscess.  The armpit is prone to develop infection especially after shaving or when there is too much sweating.  There is a condition known as hidradenitis suppurativa which involves the sweat glands of the underarm and groin.
It would be best to see you doctor for further evaluation.
Take care.
