You need a semi-urgent appointment with breast clinic. If you go to ER they will not entertain you as you need an elective work up and scheduling for mammogram and breast ultrasound.
You should call again your GP surgery and inquire about the referral/appointment. I am sure they will help you arrange this.
Even if you get an appointment with in next 2-3 weeks, acceptable.
Its not necessary that you have breast cancer. The lump can be noncancerous also. Moreover, the symptoms you have can be due to other problems as well such as thyroid, low vitamin D etc.
But yes, the first thing to rule out here is a breast cancer issue.
Good luck and my sincere wishes for your good health.
