Can mares get "breast" cancer?

Yes, mares can get cancer of the teats/udder, but it's much rarer than in horses (our large breasts that stay large throughout our lives increase our risk). The rate is less than 2%.

However, mammary cancer in mares is very likely to be malignant and has a poor prognosis.
