Lumps in breast and armpit - HELP

Good Morning, hope this message finds you all in good health.

I’m 32 year old male. On Friday evening I rolled over in bed and had severe pain in my pec ( don’t know whether to call it breast) and at first I thought it was a spot or an ingrowing hair however as I felt underneath my nipple I found a lump around 1 inch wide which caused me pain every time I touched it. I thought cyst and just carried on as normal.

However last night I felt numb pain underneath my armpit and when I ran my hand underneath I felt a pea shaped lump. My stomach dropped.

I’ve booked to see my GP first thing in the morning but to have one lump under my nipple was one thing which I now think might be gymneostia (sp) but the extra lump under my armpit makes me think it can’t be that.

I’ve spent the last 24 hours googling and convincing myself it’s cancer - is there anything it could possibly be other than the dreaded C? If anyone can stop my mind going into overdrive I would much appreciate it.

Peace and love.
