No: Unless the meat is tainted with some chemical, toxin, or radiation. Many years ago in my country we had an epidemic of early breast development in young girls due to estrogen being fed to chickens but to my knowledge there was no increase incidence of breast cancer from that.

FDA report?: I've never heard of the DFA report but the fda recently reported that chicken contains arsenic because it is intentionally added to chicken-feed. This has actually been known for years. While arsenic is a known carcinogen, it is not known if the amount of arsenic in chicken is enough to cause cancer; it likely depends on how much chicken one eats. See comment for more details.
