Has a physician examined your armpit and palpated this lump, and examined your breast and neck? If not, see one promptly.. More than a mammogram will most likely be needed to fully evaluate your symptoms & findings. A breast surgeon may be a good person to start with.

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described suggests an inflammatory lesion. It is good that you are planning to see a doctor.
Wish you good health!
