Up to you.: Sounds like it could be a cancer. But there is little benefit to worrying about things that might happen as there is also a chance that they might not happen. The biopsy will give you an answer. There is no reason to do a biopsy more quickly than what is scheduled. Until then live your life as you would normally.
