When to See a Breast Surgeon?

Women should conduct monthly breast self-exams and pay attention to changes in their breasts. Talk with your primary care physician or your OB/GYN about when you should start having an annual mammogram, a special X-ray of the breast that can show growths that are too small to feel with your fingers during self-exam

Contact your primary care physician or your OB/GYN if you detect changes such as:

  • Lumps in the breast or underarm
  • Dimpling
  • Breast pain
  • Redness or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • Change in the size or shape of the breast
  • Anything that looks or feels different

Your primary care doctor or OB/GYN will refer you to a breast surgeon if a mammogram or other diagnostic test indicates you have a breast health issue. Surgery may range from a breast conserving procedure known as a lumpectomy to a mastectomy in which the entire breast is surgically removed. Your breast surgeon will review your surgical options as well as the possibilities for breast reconstruction, should you choose to undergo that procedure. Breast reconstruction is usually performed by a plastic surgeon who works with your breast surgeon.
