In brief: Yes

Hi Jeniffer, Yes, the arm pit is a common place for cysts to develop.
Based on your brief description, I am unsure of what type of cyst you may have, however just for your general information. I have included an article about epidermoid and sebaceous cysts, a common type of cyst that we encounter clinically. Hope this helps. http://wb.md/1k6wVL9
