Swollen Axilla Gland

I woke up during the night with a pain and a lump in my armpit. I believe this is a sweat gland called the Axilla Gland. Should I have anything to be concerned about and why does this gland swell.

Barbs, it might be due to an infection in the arm, chest or the axilla itself. It might of course be due to something more serious like a malignancy, but the above cause are much more common. The best would be to see your doctor if it doesn’t clear up within the next couple of days. Good luck.
