Brief Answer: This may be a sign of another cnacer Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. Bleeding with scabs may be due to another cancer on the other breast. And that too may be in locally advanced stage. However, other causes like infection cannot be ruled out. Somehow, you need to convince her on going to the doctor. She may be scared of surgery or chemotherapy. So you can tell her that this time we may just do with oral tablets if need be, avoiding these two. Hope this helps. Regards
