In brief: Unlikely

The late studies relating dense breasts, with dense collagen, to increased risk of breast disease may point towards an association, but nothing is proven so far. As for collagen and the claims that it would enhance joints and cushioning, still not scientifically proven too, if you have history, or family history, of breast disease avoid doubtful treatments, keep the follow up & routine tests
