In brief: Could
There are fibrocystic breast tissue that is sensitive to caffeine and so-- will have fewer cysts with less caffeine.

In brief: Maybe.Try it.
Giving up caffeine helps some women, others not.
Other things that may help: evening primrose oil, reducing fat to less than 20% of your total calories. Give it a 2 cycle trial before you decide it doesn't work for you. Good luck.

In brief: Usually not.
It is very common for women to have "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue, termed fibrocystic changes.
There is conflicting literature regarding the effects of caffeine on breast tissue; discontinuing it's use has little effect on most women. If you are suffering from breast pain, there is little downside to stopping caffeine for a short time to check for a decrease in pain.
