Painful lump tissue in armpit

Patient

Q: I have been struggling with a lump under both my armpits. Its soft tissue that is painful when pressed. Its been there for years and only gets bigger. I can't ever find any information on what this is and why I have it. Lately I've been having pimples all over them which has never happened until just a couple weeks ago. This is so horrible I can't wear sleeveless tops in the summer. I just Dont know what this may be and how I can go about removing these painful lumps. Please help

Symptoms:  Pain when pressing and growing over the years
