Brief Answer:
bilateral mammography

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Breast cancer spreads very rapidly if not treated early.
Since you are 73 year old and as you are having lump and pain in your breast you need to do bilateral mammography within 1 month and cannot wait till November.

Hope I have answered your query.

Regards
DR De
