In brief: Depends

Most benign breast findings do not lead to or cause breast cancer.
Some breast tissue biopsies can show benign but possibly pre-cancerous cells, such as atypical ductal hyperplasia or lobular neoplasia (for example). You would need to discuss any breast biopsy results and their possible risks with your doctor.
