In brief: Needs evaluation.

It is not normal to have a swollen vein under your armpit(axilla).
It could be nothing more than enlargement due to inflammation but it can also be a sign of something more significant. You need to be evaluated by vein specialist or vascular surgeon and you may need a venous ultrasound.
