I am making my mom an appointment tomorrow because everything I have read online freaked me out to death...My mom does not really exercise but recently she worked out for a bit & started dieting & then the next day she developed red spots on her breast & they were more painful and tender than usual but the next day she had her period & the pain kind of went away but the red spots remain & im afraid its the rare form of inflammatory breast cancer has anyone experienced anything like this?

Starting an exercise program is not normally considered an increased risk factor for any form of cancer. Pain and tenderness of the breasts is common in the week before your period. It is possible that she also caused some injury/strain if her bra was not supportive enough. It is good she is getting this checked out, but I think it is unlikely to be cancer.
In our observation as holistic practitioner, usually patients with inflammatory breast cancer has very big red swollen lump. The lump causes pain/warmth that she cannot bear. Just remember that inflammatory breast cancer is typical of stage 3B (quite advance), so it doesn't just come out like that. Before reach this stage, usually the lump appear without any pain & then grow slowly/rapidly. From your story, I doubt that this is inflammatory type. Anyway, the doctor will diagnose further. Good luck.
Red spots are not a symptom of IBC. Let your mom make her own appointments she knows when she needs a doctor and when she doesnâ€™t.
You are over-reacting and scaring yourself. The presence of a red spots is not indicative of any serious illness and certainly not cancer. Most likely, since your mother just started an exercise routine, she has a mild heat rash. Trapped perspiration against the skin can produce a mild rash. There is nothing to worry about. Your mother has no symptoms of cancer or any other serious illness
