Huge painful lump in armpit

A few days ago after shaving I had a small pus filled bump and obviously popped it. Then it became a scar with lot of pus under it which i would remove. Now, however, right next to/fusing with it is a hard lump about the size of a quarter (except more oval). It is extremely painful and is throbbing constantly.

Does anyone know what this is or how I can make it better without going to the doctor?? I dont think it's anything serious like cancer but the pain is almost too much right now.

Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
