No cure: Fibrocystic breast disease is the presence of fibrocystic tissue in the breasts. There is no cure for fibrocystic breast disease but there is treatment to decrease the discomfort. Decreasing caffeine intake will minimize breast tenderness and increasing vitamin E to 800 or 1000 international units (iu) each day will also decrease the pain.

Yes and No!: Complex topic but to be brief: most common condition responsible for "lumpiness" or "bumps." it usually affects women of reproductive age and declines with menopause. It is not a malignant condition (not cancer), but significant cases can hinder proper visualization during mammography lowering sensitivity of the test to detect pathology. Lowering caffeine intake can help with discomfort.
