No: Decrease caffeine and salty foods to decrease symptoms. The density and fibrocystic changes cannot be controlled.

Normal breast tissue: All breasts are fibrocystic. When the breasts get sore and lumpy during your period, this is fibrocystic change. This changes can also occur due to increases in caffeine intake, stress and hormone use. So in essence, you can't get rid of fibrocystic breasts but you can improve the symptoms related to them (see some of my other posts on breast tenderness/fibrocystic breast disease).
