male with swelling under armpit

I am 42 year old male.  I noticed swelling under my right armpit.  Does not seem to be a distinct mass just a swollen area about the size of a silver dollar.  It is no more than about 1/4 inch higher than the other side but is clearly there. No discoloration or noticeable pain.  I spoke to my doctor who said he didn't know what it was but we should keep an eye on it to see what it does.  Does anyone have any ideas on what this is or if I should be concerned?  I have no scratches or abrasions on my arm and the other side appears normal.
