I have a lump around my armpit. At first I thought it was an ingrown hair, but its really big to be an ingrown hair. Can it be something else?

In brief: Go to your doctor

It may still be an ingrown hair or a cyst but it is time to have a health care professional look at it.
If you can't get into your doctor right away..Go to an urgent care center and have someone look at it and document it.
