25 year old male with hard lump in armpit

Hi I'm a 25 year old male and 2 weeks ago I
noticed a pea sized lump in the middle of my
armpit. It was painful and red so I assumed it was
a boil and didn't take to much notice. The lump is
still there but now it is painless and rock hard, it
doesn't move and feels attatched to the tissue in
my armpit. I haven't had any feelings of being ill.
Could this be a sign of cancer?
