Please See Doctor: Your symptoms require medical evaluation to check for a possible breast cancer. Please make an appointment to see your primary care doctor or gynecologist. They will refer you to a breast surgeon who can sort this out, usually by doing a simple office-based biopsy under local anesthesia. Don't delay!
