In brief: See a breast surgeon

If there is a lump, it needs to be resolved.
This may require a biopsy (preferably a needle/core). If your current provider(s) can't give you an answer, seek a second opinion.

In brief: Need tissue

If 1 has a breast lump suspicious for cancer, then 1 needs a tissue sample through some type of biopsy(ex:core bx) to determine the type of cancer.If on initial bx ductal carcinoma is found, then surgery(ex lumpectomy) is needed for final diagnosis and extent of disease, such as grading, hormone recetors, and spread to lymph nodes.
Follow ur docs' recommendations w/o delay for best further treatment.
