Mole in armpit

I have had a black mole for a long time under my right armpit. It's flat and its not very small in size. A few days backs I felt some soreness in my armpit and found what felt like swelling of lymph nodes which was gone in 2 days (I don't know if it's related but I got my period the same day). But now I discover that the mole has turned painful especially on touching or stretching my arm too much. I haven't shaved underarms in a long time either which could've been a reason for the discomfort. Should I be worried?
