Axillary Mass: Hi, this sounds like it could be an abscess. These are painful, warm, red, fast appearing masses under the skin. An abscess generally needs to be drained and treated with antibiotics. See a medical provider today. Good luck.

See Dr./aspiration,,: I don't think this is a tumor, as your are young for it, but sometimes tumors occur at your age, and if painful, it can be an abscess/infection. Regardless of what it is, a visit to your doctor for examination and likely aspiration is strongly encouraged. Best of luck.
