Blood spots rash under skin on left breast at the bottom and it itches a little. I am scared to death. Can this be breast cancer?

Rash: Not likely a breast cancer, more likely a skin disease like eczema, which especially with pendulous breasts may become irritated or infected. First see your pcp or obg for a good breast exam including palpation for masses or nipple discharge. This may just be a skin disease, but should be checked.
