Should I get this checked out?

I have a lump in my armpit, sometimes it is barely there, but at other times like today it feels pea sized and is quite painful too.

Mum is worried, but I was led to believe it was probably a swollen gland, cancerous lumps arent painful are they?

Anyone else experience this?

Any lump should be checked, it could be a gland but it's best to let your GP decide. smile

well im no expert, but if it changes sizes and actually goes smaller, then i would say its deffo a gland

It's worth going to the GP anyway, to get it checked out.
