Hi Manon - Since you say this is occurring over "some time," I'd assume it's been happening for awhile, which doesn't point to cancer. If the spots develop (e.g., they get bigger, painful, your breast seems infected), then see your regular doctor. Otherwise, I'd ask a dermatologist about this. Good luck - PJH
