In brief: No
What usually happens is that one would pay more attentions to the breast and examine it frequently due to the trauma ( got hit by something) and she then accidentally finds a lump or mass on the breast.
The lump most likely has been there for a while and not related to the trauma.

In brief: No
No, an isolated breast trauma has not been linked to breast cancer but if you have concerns about a bruised area or a lump, it is best to have it looked at by your pcp or our breast surgeon.
They will likely order an ultrasound and mammogram to get baseline information and ruling out tumors.

In brief: Myth or
"wives' tale", completely unfounded.
There is the possibiliy that n established cancer when traumatized could bleed and enlarge, but "cause" is stuff of stories.
