I have a small round mass in my armpit (near the surface), diameter probably a few mm. Should I be worried or get it checked?

In brief: Why not?

Without knowing you and your history, the responsible things would be to advice you to get it checked.
The very fact that you are concerned is reason enough to check it out.
