advice please - problem with skin by mx scar and point of recurrence

Hello

I'm currently having a little crisis, having found a small area on my R breast around the site of my original mx scar (1997, aged 38) and the site of my local recurrence (2009, aged 50) that is red and a bit raised (about the size of my smallest fingernail) with a smaller area of yellowish very dry skin which looks like it could become ulcerated, in the centre of it.

I just wondered if anyone has eperienced anything similar, and what that turned out to be.

I have a triage appointment with GP tomorrow am and hope to be seen or referred asap. I have found both previous cancers myself but have had a few false alarms too. 

I've been lucky enough to bring my children up to adulthood, which I know from friendships over the years is given to all of us but I'm still very worried. 

Any advice greatefully accepted! x
