Default lucas-lehmer theorem

Hello,
there are various generalization of the lucas-lehmer test,for example one is in http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Lucas-LehmerTest.html for N+1.
I think that i've found another generalization to the theorem and proved the sufficent part.
but it seems that the necessary part is beyond my mathematical skill.so,suppose that the theorem that i'm speak about it is not know,my question is:
do i have to spent months(years?) to gain the right amount of math knowledge and try to complete the proof,and maybe let another person discover the same thing, or it's better to release an incomplete theorem and let the necessary part to someone else?
