I have 4 pretty large and hard lumps in my left armpit. There is some moderate pain. They showed up out of nowhere within 2 days. What should I do?

In brief: Nodules

Painful nodules in the armpit are you lymph nodes.
Make sure you don't have any potential infection, from shaving. If fevers, chills, feeling sick you likely have an infection and can benefit from some antibiotic course such as keflex. If the nodules do not go away after a few weeks you will need to get this biopsied for further evaluation.
