In brief: Probably not.

There's a form of breast cancer called "inflammatory cancer" which presents as red, swollen skin on the breast.
Another type of breast ca is padget's disease, but that is usually seen on the areola. Both are rare, fortunately. If the lesion has been there for a while, you should get it checked out. A skin biopsy is the only way to know for certain.

In brief: doesn't sound like

It sure doesn't sound like it, but symptoms like these deserve a full evaluation in person by your health care provider, especially when you are concerned about a potentially fatal disease.
