reading all you have written i think as far as final conclusion is concerned about nature of growth you need to wait for biopsy report.

the complaints you are mentioning needs clinical attention and needs to be treated on the basis of symptoms till final result of biopsy come.

according to me you should meet your doctor discuss your problems and start treatment.
