Who do you call

I planned on asking my surgeon about this at my last appointment and of course forgot until I got home grrr!! But which doctor do you call when you have issues? Since it's something new do you call your primary? I think my issues are related to radiation so should I call them? Or it could be Tamoxifan issues...I'm so confused!!
