In brief: Breast lump

You need a clinical breat exam and either mammogram or ultrasound, maybe both.
See a doctor/clinic.

In brief: See physician

An experienced physician can often differentiate the lumpy-bumpy normal tissue from suspicious masses.
Their exam, combined with your medical history, will guide them to ordering additional imaging and possible biopsy.

Pathology

In brief: Removal

The only sure way is to have the lump removed and the tissue examined by a pathologist.
