Suggest treatment for tumors on the nipples

I have neurofibromatosis 1. I have several tumors on my nipples that are larger than the nipple itself. They get really nasty and smell badly and hurt terribly. I am on disability and I am wondering where I can find a doctor to remove them. My neurologist said I would need a plastic surgeon
