I am experiencing the same exact problem as you right now and I'm to scared by taking care of this situation. I've been looking around here to know if anyone has same problem as me to know more to do about it and after I saw your topic here I just thought I'd email you here. I'm also 27 I'm same age as you. I really would like to here more about this from you. We can help each other out in such situation. It's been days I'm crying over this matter. I'd really appreciate it to hear from you.
Thanks so much,

Hi Steph,
I am troubled that you are so overwhelmed by the uncertainty of your situation. Your doctor really needs to take the time and explain what he or she thinks might be going on.

I can understand your anxiety caused by the testing and uncertainty of what might be the problem.
Has your doctor talked to you about the abnormal findings found on the ultrasound? I am wondering, did you have a mammogram?
When the lymph nodes were noted last year, I'm assuming that they were enlarged and caused attention. When you were treated with antibiotics, did your doctor tell you why you were being treated with these drugs? Was an infection suspected, since antibiotics are prescribed to treat infections.
Has your doctor explained why you need an MRI? And why you are being sent to see a surgeon? I will guess that the surgeon may plan to perform a biopsy. With a biopsy, a small amount of the cells or tissues in the abnormal area can be removed and analyze to determine whether the cells are abnormal and help make a diagnosis.
I hope this information can guide you to ask your doctor more questions. Please keep us posted.
