It was already my year for waiting and now this makes me worry even more. It is in a new spot and there are new areas to be concerned about. Has this wait cost me time...I am so scared

Hi all, my name is Renee and I am a mumma of 4 and 32yrs old. Recently I found a lump in my left breast and went for a scan. They suggested biopsy amd I had it but it came back inconclusive and possible fibro. They also found another one on my next scan and they didn't even bother with a biopsy because of my age, the fact they thought I had another and I just felt really dismissed. I have swelling under my armpit on the left side and 2 tiny hard lumps that hurt to put my arm down. They hurt constantly and I really feel there is something wrong but I keep being dismissed. I guess my question is, has anyone else had a similar situation and turned out to be breast cancer. I have little dots all over my left breast but they look like hair follicles gone crazy! Should I persist in them taking them out. The second one they found was significantly larger than the first and is steadily growing and misshaped. I am pretty scared it could be worse and leaving it for another yr could be deterimental to my health. I am constantly tired, fatigued and wake up covered in sweat most nights. Please tell me I am not crazy haha.
