Scared and alone

Hi all, I just need some friends right now :(
about 3 weeks ago I was going to bed and I was putting my night lotion on around my neck and I noticed a lump I went into panic mode and googled (which I regret) and a lot of things came up which all related to cancer.
I all ready have a fear to the disease because I lost my mother to it 2 years ago she had brain cancer and
they told her she had 6 months to live. My boyfriend took me to the E.R and they did blood test and an MRI
they said I had an enlarged thyroid with multiple nodules the first thing i did was brake down my boyfriend lost his mother to cancer and so did I so this is are worst nightmare, the worst part is I had to spend Christmas new years and my birthday crying and fearing the worst. My biopsy is this week on Wednesday. I have also had back pain since I had my daughter 8 years ago and never got it checked out because I figured it was from me being a nurse assistant and that ruins your back but now I’m scared that everything might be related and I can't stop crying guys I’m such a mess right now :( I honestly feel so broken I Just turned 30 and I keep thinking of what if this is it? I'm sorry guys I just need some support </3

For thyroid MRI is not as accurate as ultrasound; the areas of inflammation may look like nodules on MRI. if you post the report it will be possible to give better answer

First of all worrying doesn't help anything. It just takes your peace away for today. It is not uncommon to have nodules. You cannot know anything without a Fine needle aspiration biopsy. Also called FNA. Just calm down and wait for the results of your tests. If it turns out to be malignant then you'll do fine with a thyroidectomy. Cross each bridge as you come to them. No point in trying to jump hurdles that are only imagined. You are going to stress yourself out. Back pain can come from thyroid issues and a lot of other things too, like stress. Pray and keep calm.

You've been given some good advice... Thyroid nodules, if that's what you have, are very common with, both Graves Disease and Hashimoto's... I, personally, have quite a few of them.  Less than 5% of all thyroid nodules turn out to be cancer.  

What blood test did they do?  Was it for thyroid? Do you  have the results?  Is so, please post them, along with reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own reports...
