Is this another form of cancer

I had breast cancer 3 years in August. I’ve now got a few like spots but have been there for over 6 weeks they are on the exact same spot as I had my lump also that area is dipping and so is the opposite side of my breast by my lymph nodes near my armpit. Could this be a secondary breast cancer as one of the spots looks a bit clear looking?

If you have any doubts I’d contact your team and ask for review. Secondary’s can come in an all shapes and sizes as can skin conditions such as dermatitis… just get it seen and checked for assurance, then you will have peace of mind.
Take care

It’s understandable that you have some questions having developed some new spots on your breast. Breast changes, such as spots, can be caused by different things, but can sometimes be a sign of breast cancer recurrence. Most breast cancers don’t come back, but we would always recommend getting any new symptom checked by your treatment team, as @helen3 and @charlottebee say.
