Breast injuries do not cause cancer

A bump or blow to the breast will not cause breast cancer. Sometimes an injury may result in a benign (not cancer) lump known as fat necrosis. Fat necrosis is scar tissue that can form when the body naturally repairs the damaged fatty tissue. Having a breast injury may make you more aware of your breast and result in the breast being examined or followed more closely than usual.
