In brief: No
Fibrocystic breasts are often a sign of estrogen dominance.
You may have too much or potent kinds of estrogen. Your ovaries produce estrogen but so do fat cells. Inflammation from sugar/trans fats make fat cells produce more. Foods that are not organic contain pesticides which act like estrogen. Your liver may not be breaking estrogen down properly. Constipation prevents the release of estrogen.
