A breast exam: Is usually done by your gyn or a breast specialist if you have had a problem and that doc will order a mammogram which is done by a technician and read by a radiologist and the report will be sent to the doc who ordered the mammogram and that doc will tell you the report results.

Do you have: a lump? Probably a breast surgeon would be best. Otherwise, your OB/GYN or other primary care physician would be able to perform a breast exam and order a mammogram if needed.
