armpit lump

I am 35 years old and recently noticed a nodular-type lump in my my right armpit area.  It is somewhat painful to touch and also in the area surrounding it.  It has not changed in size over the past 3 days, nor have I found any other nodules/lumps in the general area. I have not been sick lately, nor on any medications.  Could this be a serious problem, and would you recommend that I see my general practioner or an OBGYN?  

Thank you for your time.

Dear TAC, There could be a variety of causes for the occurrence of a lump, and does not mean that it is due to a serious problem.  The first step in having the lump evaluated would be having it examined by a health care professional, your general practitioner is fine.
