Lump in Armpit

My 16 year old daughter has developed a painful lump in the armpit since only the past two days. The lump is below the surface and is the size of a pea.

What could this be and what sort of physician do i need to see?

Morning :)

I think this actually sounds like a little node which can be very common,having one myself that doesn't give me any problems,it is normally a little fat tissue moulded together however if it is soar at all or you or your daughter are worried just go to a GP and get it checked out they will know. I am no doctor myself like your daughter I'm just another teenager.
