I woke with a swollen armpit / lymph node on my right arm. I've noticed its been tender for a while but it just now became hard. What is this?

In brief: See a Dr

Likely to have lymph node enlargement there.
Even though some benign diseases like hidradenitis suppurativa or other affect that area, cancer is a concern either lymphomas, hodgkin, even fron chest, breast, lung.
