Definitely: Among others, deep abscesses, such as the ones seen in hidradenitis suppurativa may be the cause and specific treatment will be needed. See your GP or an urgent care facility.

Yes: Persistent pain of any kind is the body saying something is wrong. Definitely could be some type of abscess or another infection with painful lymph nodes fighting it off. Dr exam needed
