In brief: It's possible.

They are not usually painful.
However, depending on the location and if they are ulcerating or draining, they could potentially cause discomfort.

Lymphangiomas often react to systemic illness; they may become swollen, red and painful. Often this requires treatment with antibiotics and/or short course of oral steroids to calm the infection and inflammation down.
