Armpit lump

Hello, for a few weeks i have developed a pea size lump on my right armpit. it is not right under the armpit but it is right beside the area. it is noticeable but not painful, also it is not reddened but just the same as my skin colour. im in good health i believe and only fourteen at the moment, i'm not sure what to do, do you have an idea of what this lump may be and what should i do about it. Thank you.

Do you drink a lot of caffeine type drinks? Some women develop cysts that are from drinking tea, soda, or anything w/caffeine. Some people also get what is called a lymphoma (fatty tumor) these are usually benign. Can you move it or is it fixed to one area?  To be positve and if it bothers you, you should make an appt. and have it checked out?
