Time to see doctor: Time to see one's primary care doctor this week. If needed, the doctor can refer to Radiology to do imaging studies of the breasts, and refer to other specialists in breast problems. All lumps in breasts have to be diagnosed, to make sure they are either ok or not ok. A woman in her 40's, with a breast lump with or without nipple discharge, will want to rule out breast cancer.
