Painless, Itchless Brownish red patches under my breasts

I am a 35 year old woman. I had noticed one flat patch of brownish red on my belly for a little over a year. It is still there and is only a few centimeters in diameter. It hasn't gotten any bigger and it hasn't faded much. Last week, I noticed another larger one under my breast. It's only slightly smaller than a dime. Just this morning, I noticed two more (one on the underside of my breast and the other under the opposite breast). The new ones range from a few centimeters to a quarter of an inch in diameter.

I've been looking for pictures that are similar and can't find any. The possibilities I've encountered have ranged from tenia versicolor to melasma to age spots. The closest I've seen have been of tenia versicolor, but I don't seem to have as many spots as many of those images showed on the patients. This part of my body has not seen the sun since October. As I've mentioned, they don't hurt and they don't itch.

My main concern with this is how quickly they've appeared. I do have adult-onset leukemia in my family history, but none of the leukemia spot pictures I have seen are similar to what I have. They really just look like some form of discoloration. I would love to see a doctor about this, but I have no insurance and can't afford to go to a doctor for something that could turn out to be nothing.

Please respond. Thank you.
