22 worried sick

Hi everyone I'm new to this site but I can't believe how supportive you all are I've been reading for a few days 🙂
I'm 22 and I have a breast lump, I had a infection in my mongomery gland and had antibiotics the gp said it wasn't a lump just a gland due to the infection so 3 weeks after finishing meds I went back on Wednesday and saw a different nurse practitioner she agreed she could also feel the lump and it wasn't a gland at al, so she has refered me to the breast clinic, I am absolutely petrified, she said it was a bean size slightly mobile and firm, and to me it's very tender like breast pain from a period/pregnancy ECt she said it could be a cyst or a breast mouse or the dreaded C, or my hormones as when I had my baby 8 months ago I suffered with PND and anxiety and was really ill, especially when I fell pregnant again straight away and had a early termination as I was terribly depressed and not myself it was best for me to have medication and get myself better, for me it was the right choice so after the termination I had the depo shot which lasts 3 months and I bled terribly the whole time I then got the pop pill and that didn't help the bleeding so she said it could be that

I am feeling so much better now and enjoying every moment with my LO and am very happy, so I really don't need something to worry about 😞 doesn't help my anxiety problems
I also just had a biopsy of my thyroid to rule out cancer which was clear just have to go back for a biopsy every 6 months for another to check any changes,

Long story I guess just thought I would tell all, and any advice x
