So I'm a 19 year old female. And last night while I was at work - around 8 my left armpit started to feel a little sore. I figured it was just from my shirt considering it's tight in that area and theres a thick seam that rubs right up against my armpit.

I got home and noticed a tiny bump in my armpit. It hurt to the touch and the area around it hurt a little bit too.

So I started freaking out last night and I called my doc this morning. She said it could be a number of things but sounded like a swollen lymph node. The bump is a little smaller today than it was last night and it's not hurting as much as it was.

She said to monitor it for a few days and if it got worse to come in and she'd take a look. Although she said in someone my age it's not something to really worry about.

Any advice - I was freaking out that I have cancer.

Your doctor gave you very sound advice, so I would just do what she said.
