asking doctor for tests?

Hi everyone. I have a pretty specific question, and I'm hoping I can get some answers/ideas.

I have big boobs. Like, really. I'm a Fat Woman and that's "bad enough" [in the eyes of the rest of society, that is] but over the past year I have added at least five-six inches to my bust. Probably more, even, but it's rather hard to measure when the tape measure doesn't reach all the way around. :/

Anyway. I am pretty worried about this, not only because it makes shopping for ANYTHING really damn hard [bras apparently don't exist in my size!] but because something is WRONG. I am 26, long out of puberty, and they won't stop growing.

Ergo, questions:

*I need to get this figured out somehow. Tests need to be done, I'm sure. But which ones?

*Will being on Lupron impact the growth at all? I started in the middle of February and I'm really curious about this. Yes, I will ask my doctors, but I'm curious if anyone has any experience.

*How do I convince my "nice and fairly decent but somewhat odd about weight" doctor that I need testing? And do I ask for XYZ tests straight out, or present the issue [my boobs won't stop growing omg!] and see where it goes from there?

*Is there any reasonable expectation that this problem will stop any time soon? I'm at the end of my rope and the rapid changes are really having a bad impact on my self-image and self-esteem, so.

edit to add:
notes to keep in mind:

*Most of the breast growth happened before I started lupron.

*I am on lupron for surgically diagnosed endometriosis.

Thank you in advance for any help or advice you may have.
