lump under my arm pit

Hi Ive been searching online for a couple days now, and I had this bump about the size of a pea under my skin and about every site has said possible cyst but ive had boils before and eventually they pop, i packed this small lump through basic training and AIT training and its been a little over a year now that its been under my arm, about a month ago i tryed to squeeze it because i was tired of it bothering me, it never popped and ive tryed several times, but now its about half the size of a golf ball and the top is soft and squishy but the rest is hard and very lumpy in shape. it is tender and I would go to the doctor but i work a lot and dont want it to jsut be a very irritated boil that i could handle myself.

I have a lump also in my armpit.  I've scheduled an appointment next week to get it checked out.  My grandmother who I look like died of Hodgkins Disease so I want to make sure it is nonthing of the sort.  I would say if it doesn't hurt and not discolored it probably not a cyst or boil.
