5cm oval hypoechoic vascular mass

I’m currently awaiting a biopsy to be done in over a week. I’m dying with anxiety. I found a lump in my breast in the middle of December, it was hard to find. A month later it has grown significantly. Had a mammo and ultrasound and it was said i have a category 4 suspicious 5.5cm oval hypoechoic vascular mass and that it needs to be biopsied. It sometimes causes me pain, like a chest pain type but only in the upper part of that breast. I can feel the lump easily. Does this sound like anything you have experienced with a malignant tumor? I just have a really bad feeling. I just turned 30, I have 3 kids. Super worried. Thank you so much for your support and experience.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this and I wish I could set your mind at ease but there’s nothing anyone of us can say except you’re doing the right thing. It needs to be checked out. Do know though that most breast cancer lumps turn out to be benign so we all hope I’m sure that you end up like most people. Good luck and please let us know how it turns out.
