Yes but unlikely: Inflammatory breast cancer (or Paget's disease of the breast) can develop quickly, starting out in the ducts (as ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS) which generally forms calcifications or spots that are picked up on mammograms; however, mammograms are notorious for providing false negative (&false positive) results. That being said, the odds are on your side that it's a b9 (fungal?) rash/dermatiti
