birad 4 on ultrasound of axillary-scared

Looking for anyone that maybe has had suspicous lymph nodes and they turned out not to be cancer. I had a shoulder MRI and they noted enlarged lymoh nodes in axillary. I was sent for a mammagram which was negative for breast cancer. Then i was sent for ultrasound of axillary lymph nodes. Report states several enlarged notes with some having cortical thickness and some having preserved fatty hila. Lymph nodes incompleted evaluated as they are deep and acoustic artifacts present. Birad score of 4 given which is suspicious for cancer. Everything i look up on the internetpoints to cancer- cortical thickness and I am assuming absence of fatty hilar in some nodes, as the report stated some have fatty hila and I guess the rest don't? I am so terrified, I am having a CT scan on Monday and feel there is no chance of this being a good finding. They have ruled out breast cancer and I believe they think it is possible recurrance of gallbladder cancer I had almost 10 years ago. I had curative surgery, an early stage and was told by my oncologist it was very highly unlikely to return after so many years. Im praying it could be something else as GB cancer recurring is not surviable. I feel so panicked I cant function. I dont know if I should tell my work that I may not be back after Tuesday. I am a teacher and they would need to find someone to take over or if I should wait til after the results.  

has anyone ever experienced a cancer scare like this? Suspicious for cancer but turns out not to be cancer? 

I wanted to note that I had the shoulder mri because of shoulder pain for 4 months , they found bursitis,tendonitis, and 3 tears. I initially believed the enlarged nodes was due to the inflammation in that shoulder. So strange that they would find cancer at the same time as they are looking at the shoulder.   Sorry for the long post, but I am leaving desperate.
