No: Vertigo is a phenomenon of Vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis. an inner ear problem usually related to infection (usually viral). Fibrocystic disease represents the effect of hormone activity on the ductal system of the breast causing some terminal duct blockage with backup of fluid to produce cysts in the duct and associated fibrotic changes.
