Welcome to HCM forum
Since you got lump in breast we have to evaluate whether it's a cancerous or non cancerous.for that you have to do certain investigation such as mammography, FNAC,this test gives us clear picture of lump. And also depending of nipple discharge we can predict but its not accurate so FNAC is most imp investigation. And consult some good surgeon.
Thank you
