I'm female, I found a bump in armpit, about 0.5" x 0.5", no skin irritation. Bump feels hard, round and appears connected (lymp node?) see doctor?

In brief: Yes

It is probably a lymph node which is a "collection station" for white blood cells and trapped bacteria or cancer cells.
Sometimes elevated armpit(axillary) lymph nodes occur after female shaving of the area if the skin is "nicked". If it doesn't go away, please see a physician.
