Rarely if ever: When it metastasizes, breast cancer can go to unusual sites, like the retroperiteum causing obstruction of the ureter. However, this is rare as it would be to go to the kidney. The more common sites of spread are bone, liver, and lung.

Yes, but very rarely: Breast cancer can spread to many different organs such as the bones, brain, lungs, and skin, but very rarely to the kidneys.
