My grandmother had breast cancer....I am very attentive to any changes in my body, to include skin changes. About two weeks ago, I noticed a brown spot on the side (almost into my armpit)of my right breast. A couple days ago, I noticed a smaller spot on the left side. The right has grown since noting it. At first, I thought maybe I just wasn't washing well enough so I paid special attention each day while showering. I've since scrubbed so hard, I've drawn blood. I believe it's safe to say, it's not dirt. I'm sure I was hoping it would be something so simple as that. I've never heard of "spots" like these being a precursor to cancer...are they a possible sign of such?
