You should be evaluated by your GP for this problem.
There may be a swollen deep lymphnode, or a local infection (like cellulitis - less likely due to prolonged duration), friction / positional pain or even a brachial (nerve) plexus trauma.
The exact cause may need further tests and specific treatment, hence an evaluation is certainly recommended,
