Could this be breast cancer ?


Hi my nearly 40 years mum went to visit my grand mum she stayed there 3 hours the weather was really hot that day and specially in my hot grand mum's house then my mum came back and she had a rash under her both breasts and some if it was at the bottom of the breast itself ..after a couple of hours the rash in the left breast was gone but it was like 40% gone in the right breast now passed 3 weeks and there's still a circle spot thats red and is a cut tissue in the middle so could this be breast cancer ? i heard that not any lump must be a breast cancer and i also saw some pictures of lumps that were breast cancer and it looked totally different also my mum's nipple is ok(not inverted) please i really need your help.

It sounds to me like it is a yeast infection. Get some Nystatin cream or powder from the doc and she should be fine. I am a med-surge nurse and have many women and a few men that have the same symptoms. Under the breasts is prime place for yeast to grow especially when it is hot outside. Hope this eases your concerns.
