You need to go to your doctor, they will refer you for tests. Ugh I had a mammogram 6 months ago... Never again, so painful, they actually broke my skin!
Hi IslandMonkey, thanks for your quick reply. Hopefully I can also get some recommendations for doctors (in Switzerland, preferably near Basel) that use the Fine Needle Aspiration technique instead of just the mammogram.

I recommend FNA in the future, mammogram will basically just show the mass, which could be harmful or benign (OK). FNA (fine needle) is better because it actually draws up the cells from the breast and determines if they are cancerous (the dangerous kind) or not.
