The lump on the breast will not give all these symptoms.
What is likely happening is that your wife has anxiety that is causing a number of other symptoms, possibly even causing some depression.

In my practice, I would assess the breast lump by ultrasound if she is below 40 years or mammography if she is above 40 years.
Then give the results of the diagnosis and if the anxiety worsens, I would refer to a counselor for anxiety management.

All the best.
