In brief: Depends

Breast cancer spread to the skin is uncommon, but there are two scenarios worth discussing.
Sometimes after breast cancer has been surgically removed it can regrow near the incision. The second situation is called inflammatory breast cancer. Here the skin is involved with cancer by direct extension of the breast cancer.
