Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If there is history of breast cancer in the family then this needs to be investigated. It can also be a boil, eczema, dermatitis or a single blister of shingles. I am sorry but the speculation will only end with your doctor examining you. Take care!
