Weird feeling under right armpit.

Hi. For 2 months now I've had this strange feeling under my right armpit.

its not painful neither is it tender or swollen, It just feels like my t shirt is under my armpit and needs to be removed?
its like a uncomfy feeling?

Worried really and its stressing me out.. Booking an appoitment with doctos but wanting to know if anyone has had the same?

Based on the description it is possible that the lump you have described could be a enlarged lymph node

Lymph nodes are part of the lymphatic system, where white blood cells (lymphocytes) mature and ‎‎‎undergo clonal multiplication. The lymphocytes are important for fighting the infection and clearing the ‎‎‎viruses and bacteria from the body. Hence during any inflammation or infection it is common for the lymph nodes to ‎‎‎increase in size and also become a bit tender (pain on application of pressure). ‎

In occasional cases, it is common for some nodes to be continuously active and hence appear enlarged permanently.

Lymph node enlargement is a very common sign and can cause many people to get stressed and ‎‎‎‎lose their sleep. A few ‎major symptoms and danger signs can help you differentiate very common ‎‎‎benign conditions and from those indicating ‎conditions like cancer and chronic diseases.

In occasional cases, it is common for some nodes to be continuously active and hence appear enlarged permanently.

In such cases , treatment with antibiotics and other anti-inflammatory measures can help to resolve the condition.

It would be recommended that you consult with your doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.
