No: The risk for breast cancer if you do not have a strong family history of breast cancer is very very low. Your bc pills are unlikely to increase your risk in the long term especially since you have stopped using them.
Dr. John Rimmer

Very small increase: The risk of developing breast cancer due to the birth on troll pill is thought to be quite small ad generally less than an unwanted pregnancy.
