Painful bump under arm help!?

There is a large firm bump under my arm.

When I say firm. It doesn’t move when I touch it. It hurts when I move my arm as well. Any ideas on what it could be? It came all of a sudden and I’m scared because cancer runs in my family. And just s bump caused my moms cancer. I know I may be jumping to conclusions with it but I can’t help but wonder considering my mom and other people in my family

    A lump under your arm could be a swollen lymph node. I would definitely get it checked out by your family doctor to see what they think as lymphoma is a common type of cancer.
