Please explain what do you call doctors that check for breast cancer?

In brief: What do you mean?

Most family docs and gynecologist will do regular breast exams looking for lumps.
A radiologist will read the mammogram. A radiologist or a surgeon will do a biopsy and a pathologist will look at the tissue under the microscope. I'm not sure what you mean by "checking" for breast cancer.
