Red swollen lump under my nipple. Could this be cancer?

In brief: In a woman

A lump under the nipple needs to be seen, perhaps a mammogram done, and biopsied.
Not all are cancers, some are. For a man, benign causes more likely, but primary or even testis cancer a prospect. Need an exam, discuss possibilities and next steps regardless.
