What are the symptoms of TB?

I am 27 female. I have been working in printing chemical invironment for 7 years. I have to work from home because I have so much pain in my lungs when I go to work and now if I am around any chemicals at all, air freshiner etc. Tonight I was having severe pain on my outer right chest wall where it normally hurts and I noticed a large mass that is very very tender to pain. I have been to many doctors about the throat and lung pain and no one seems to be able to help. Pulmonary tests show good results. I am in desperate need of some guidance of even what type of doctor shoudl I see. Cancer? TB? I am very scared and worried that I will be in trouble before I can find a doctor to help me.
