Red, itchy mark on breast

For about four weeks now I've had a red, itchy mark on my right breast, right near the nipple. There is just one, flat spot and at first I thought it was a rash or pimple even. But it hasn't healed or gone away. The breast underneath it is incredibly itchy.
I can't feel any lumps underneath it.
I'm not breast feeding or pregnant at the moment.
I'm unsure whether it's appropriate to see a doctor?

Go see your doctor immediately...
I don't want to scare you but there is a form of breast cancer that is on or around the nipple. It's called Pagets Disease.
It's a rash type thing that's scaly and very itchy..
It's very Important you get it checked today..

I agree. Go and see your doctor. Could be nothing, but better to be safe than sorry.
