In brief: Always

You can always self refer with the only limitation the occasinal insurance requiring pcp authorization.
To find out, check with your customer service consultant.

But truth be known;we are VERY poor at being able to feel breast lumps and reach any good diagnosis.Get a consult and mammogram.If YOU feel a lump it will probably need special studies to figure out what exactly the lump is.

In brief: Breast lump

Sure, most of the Gyn are consider primary physicians.
If you have PPO, then you can even self-refer to specialists too.
