Painful lump in breast

I am premenstrual, and I know breasts can become lumpy in this period of time, but I have a lump in my left breast which I noticed around a week ago, and I have been experiencing pain in this area for 2 weeks now.  I am also very stressed as I have exams very soon, and wonder if this could possibly be Da Costa's syndrome?  I'm really worried, but know if I see my GP, he will say to wait until my period comes.  Please could you give me some advice.  Thank you.
