lump in arm pit

i have a lump in my armpit. it is only about 0.5cm. it feels quite hard and is subcutaneous. it feels like it has a cord attatched which runs up into my arm. it is sore if i press it, but otherwise i would not know that it was there.any ideas what it could be and should i be worried?

Dear debimoje, It's hard to say what this is without seeing and examining it.  If it continues, causes discomfort and you're concerned, have it checked out.
