Recently felt a little bump in armpit, a little bit hurt when pressed, no excretion or anything. What could that be?

In brief: Probably benign

Small infections and cysts of the skin under the armpit are common and not a cause for alarm. However if it keeps growing or is deeper than the skin (does it move when you move the skin?) it may represent a lymph node, and should be evaluated.

In brief: ARMPIT BUMP

This sound like a cyst or an infected cyst. Do see a dermatologist.

you could also see a general surgeon. I see these often and typically in women it's an ingrown hair form shaving or a blocked adults sweat gland sort of like a pimple.
