Am I just thinking the worst?

I have bad eczema so when I got a rash type thing around my nipple ive just presumed it was that, but it is really really sore. And it leaks, I have to wear tissue in my bra when it’s really bad. Is this a sign of breast cancer? I phoned to make a doctors appointment today but the female doctor in our area is off for a week so will make an appointment with her when she returns, I would just like some information in the meantime. Thankyou in advance for anyone who gets back to me.
