Armpit and under arm pain 3 months after radiotherapy

I finished my radiotherapy mid December and I suffered no real ill effects at the time, but now feels really tender and sore around the lymph area under my arm. I had a sentinel node biopsy (which was clear) and lumpectomy and breast reduction, back in May 17 then chemo (as I had TNBC) followed by radiotherapy. Could this be late effects of radiotherapy? Don’t want to rush to doctors after every symptom!
