Breast surgeon eval: Breast masses should be evaluated by a physician experienced in breast evaluation. A breast surgeon is likely the best choice. They will evaluate the mass and any radiologic studies you have had done. Then they would guide you to determine if a biopsy, mass removal or simply monitoring is the most appropriate next step.
