I just found a lump under my arm, it's not sure but uncomfortable and when I touch it it's feels very bruise like, could this be cancerious?

In brief: Let's hope not...

But let's focus on the loving thing to do.
.. Which is to have it checked out, even if it is nothing... Just because it's uncomfortable and needs to be looked at... Focus on the joy of caring for urself... See ur regular dr. Asap.... Why wait? Wishing you well...

In brief: Depends

It's likely a lymph node, but without seeing it and laying hands on it, these things are difficult to really diagnose.
That being said, there's no way to tell if it's cancer without seeing a physician. There's not a great way to diagnose cancer without sticking a needle into it. If you're concerned it might be, you should probably see a doctor, or if it's not better in a day or two.
