Thanks for the query.
Firstly,the breast lump hasnt got a direct connection with the thyroid.She needs to take medication for that.The normal TSH level is between 2.5-4.5.If it more that that then she needs to be on medication.The breast lump needs to be investigated further.An FNAC and mammography are essential.Surgery depends on the biopsy report.To answer your question,the thyroid and the breast lump arent related.So seeing a specialist is the best possible option now.
