In brief: See a doctor!

Lumps or masses are usually benign, however hard painful lumps are not normal regardless of age and need to be evaluated by a doctor. Additional testing may be needed such as an MRI.
The non-painful lumps also need to be evaluated. They may be swollen lymph nodes or something else concerning.

So, clearly we agree that you should see someone and get these evaluated. How it is done will depend on your exam findings.

In brief: Get it checked

Most likely these are lymph nodes from an infection in your arm or armpit.
However, lymph nodes can be more serious and although you are young you should have an exam, x-ray and mammogram to be sure it is not dangerous. Good luck!
