In brief: No clear evidence
There is no conclusive research linking the use of underarm antiperspirants or deodorants and the subsequent development of breast cancer.

In brief: "Never say never"...
Is one of the things we learn in medical school.
But there are things that are highly, highly unlikely. A link between cancer and deodorant use is just such an extremely unlikely association. I suggest that you read this abstract: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/18829420.
