In brief: Not a direct link

Breast cancer can spread to the lungs.
Very rarely, lung cancer can spread to the breasts. Some lung cancers are estrogen or Progesterone receptor positive.

In brief: Metastatic cancer

Breast cancer can spread to the lungs, but we still consider it breast cancer (we call it metastatic then).
Other than that i don't know of a link with breast cancer and lung cancer (cancer that arose from the lung tissue).

In brief: No

There are occassional strikes of lightening twice in the same patient, but it is not due to a scientific link.
Breast cancer has no ling to smoking or tobacco, and the link is very strong with lung cancer. We could stop 90% of lung cancer by cigarettes disappearing, but we don't have that fortune with breast cancer. Notice that cigarettes are still leader and many geniuses exercise their freedom.
