Red patches on breast and underarm

My older sister called today and said she has about 6 red patches (rash like) on her breast and one under her arm. She also says her breast is very tender.

Is this a symptom of breast cancer?

Re: Red patches on breast and underarm

I'm not a doctor, but it seems unlikely that a rash would indicate breast cancer. Sounds more like an allergic skin reaction to something, such as a new soap or laundry detergent or moisterizing lotion.

Re: Red patches on breast and underarm

Did your sister ever find out what the rash was?

Re: Red patches on breast and underarm

Update:

Well her rash went away, but I saw her recently and she does not look well. She was supposed to go get blood tests done and hasn't done so. Was sick for four days last week and chalked it up to be the flu.

We'll see. She is a procrastinator when it comes to her health, I think it's going to catch up to her.
