Probably not: There was one small study out of lancaster university that suggested a link between breast trauma and breast cancer, but the conventional wisdom at present is that there is no significant link between breast trauma and breast cancer.

No: This has not been established as a cause. It may be a coincidence that alerts a patient to a problem that has been brewing for quite some time but went unnoticed.
