Breast surgeon: The surgical management of a breast mass must be made one on one as this is a complex issue where one simple answer can not be applied to everyone. Consider discussing with a breast surgeon. Given your family history of breast cancer consider genetic cancer screening for BRCA 1 and 2. Check out MYrisk testing offered by Myriad labs
