Mmg, u/s, breastexam: To best evaluate a newly noticed breast lump you should she your primary care doctor or gynecologist. A physical exam by your doctor as well as an ultrasound can tell a lot about the mass and a mammogram may b needed as well. It is possible that additional views are needed if something is suspicious appearing and even a biopsy and MRI may b indicated. If u have a new lump you should go see md.
