Lump in the armpit. Breast exam report normal. Should I get checked again?

I found a lump in my left armpit area, like a little below the armpit, it hurts only if i really press it with the tips of my finger. its not visible at all, not even when i lift my arm up. i went to the doctors not too long ago to get a breast examination and she didn't find anything alarming. am i being paranoid? could you possible tell me if i should go to the doctors again to get it checked out?

It seems that you might be having some infection in your armpit or surrounding area giving rise to this lump and it might be enlarge lymph node.
So check for any small infection surrounding like fungal infection, ingrowing skin follicular infection etc.
Go for your breast examined manually thoroughly for having any lump or swelling in the breast.
Ok and take care.
