Hi I woke up this morninf with a lump under my right arm. I think it is just a swollen gland, but should I be worried at all?

Dear amy,
IF it is painful and red, it normally is an infected sweat gland and you can treat it by putting on an antibiotic ointment like Bactroban. If it is just a lump, rubbery, not red, not moving about easily, you should let your GP have a look.
