Can you get an enlarged sweat gland in the armpit? Feels like a lump under the surface of the skin. How long should it stay there?

In brief: Yes but...
This could be plugged hair follicle, but this usually presents as a painful bump on the surface of the skin, although it can sometimes feel like it is under the skin.
This could also be an enlarged lymph node. Your doctor should be able to examine you and explain if this is anything to be concerned about.
