In brief: Maybe.
There have been multiple studies done over the past several decades and indeed there are indications that there my be a relationship.
Some studies say yes, others no. Overall, the results of these studies suggest that smoking probably does not decrease the risk and indeed suggest that there may be an increased breast cancer risk with smoking of long duration, smoking before a first pregnancy.
