Swollen breast, small lump

Hi all. This weekend i’ve been full of cold! Then on Sunday I noticed that my left breast was sore. On inspection, I could see that there was a red mark there. I got a doctors app straight away for the next day. The doctor examined my breasts, saying that the tissue had thickend and was inflamed. He said there was a lump underneath ( a small one.) He referred me to a breast specialist there and then and made me promise not to worry!! ( easier said than done) he also prescribed me antibiotics for the inflamation. I’m at my wits end and scared. I don’t like waiting, nor do i like not knowing what to expect! I’m petrified of even the thought of having to have a biopsy. Can anyone share a similar story and outcome? I’m a mum of 3, work full time and 28 years of age.
