So many symptoms & waiting for Mammogram

I went to my OB for a very red swollen breast with a large lump. I also had this strange red streak and swollen lymph nodes under my armpit. They prescribed antibiotics and treated as mastitis even though I haven’t nursed in 4+ years. They mentioned the red streak resembled Mondor’s Disease but it was just red not cord like. Follow up was Monday and the lump has shrunk but found another lump at the visit. I also have bad bruising where the initial lump was found along with peeling skin and my nipple is slightly retracting. It is also still very tender. I woke up this morning with a painful swollen lymph node in the opposite armpit. My mammogram and ultrasound aren’t for another week and I am absolutely TERRIFIED. I’ll go a few hours without thinking of it and then the cycle starts all over again. Any advice or simile experiences?
