Go back to your doct: The doctor who removed your prior lump can guide you further. If the previous lump was a breast cancer, then you have to be very concerned that the new lump could be a local recurrence of your breast Cancer. You may also seek a second opinion from another surgeon or Family physician who could guide you where to go next.
