Skin or breast cancer

Large red burning spot on breast. Swells up then scabs over , and does not go away. Onset, of finding lumps in breast. Went on Chemo lumps gone red peach size keeps stays gets smaller then flare up. Went to dermatologist, he said blood vessels, which makes no sense but he was freezing off melanoma at time.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

If your dermatologist suspected melanoma then a biopsy should be done to determine or rule out the diagnosis. Herpes zoster can be a possibility if the lesions are painful and present in a dermatomal distribution. I didnt really understand the blood vessels theory. may be he was referring to a hemangioma.

Wishing you best of health
