Agree w Dr. Ram: This could be an inflammed lymph node, a cyst etc. Don't jump to the conclusion that this is cancer-but do get it checked.

Not really: Cancer in the armpit essentially represents metastasis to the lymph nodes high up near the axillary vein. They are for the most part painless and would not be associated with redness. Rather one would expect inflammation of the sweat glands right under the skin for which warm soaks and possibly antibiotics would be effective.
