No it does not.

It can be in your genes whether you have a higher chance to get it. Other main causes of Breast cancer are being a woman and getting older. It can run in the family too.

Being hit in the breast doesn't mean you will get cancer there. It is the same likelihood that being hit anywhere else on your body will cause cancer. Very minimal.

Yes, possibly--if the trophoblastic theory of cancer is in any way correct.

The theory goes that sometimes the body's own repair system can go out of control, where adult stem cells, fibroblasts, and similar undifferentiated cells meant to go to a damaged area and repair or replace damaged tissues, keep replicating out of control because they no longer respond to the body's natural chemical and electrical signals to stop the replication / repair process.

Other theories of the illness are that cancer can be caused by pathogenic infections of microbes or fungus. Both of these types of infections can feed off of injured tissues that are unable to defend themselves against these foreign infections. As these damaged tissues are being consumed by these infections, the body's other systems kick in to isolate the infection by the growth of tumors to stop their spread. As the bodies immune system weakens, the underlying cause of the disease may spread to other parts of the body.

Both males and females produce the hormone estrogen though males produce much smaller quantities for example as a by-product of the use / conversion of the male hormone androstenedione. Scientists have noted that high levels of hormones stimulate cancer to form especially if an improper dosage is given for hormone replacement therapy. One author says that estrogen is usually located in higher concentrations around cancer tumors. There are three types of estrogen: Estrone (E1) usually produced in the brown fat / adipose tissue cells, muscle cells and skin of men and women; Estradiol (E2) produced by the central nervous system, testes; Estriol (E3) a weak hormone C18 H24 O3 that indicates normal fetal and placental activity in pregnant women.

Apoptosis, programmed cell death, is an important mechanism in cancer treatment. There is large scientific evidence that various hormones, including human growth hormone, turn off apoptosis, stimulating tumor / cancer formation.

When cancer is malignant, the cells no longer follow their directed, programmed death, and continue to replicated out of control.

The following is an abstract from a medical study indexed by Medline / Pub Med:

Amygdalin induces apoptosis through regulation of Bax and Bcl-2 expressions in human DU145 and LNCaP prostate cancer cells.Chang HK, Shin MS, Yang HY, Lee JW, Kim YS, Lee MH, Kim J, Kim KH, Kim CJ.

Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, South Korea.

prostate cancer is one of the most common non-skin cancers in men. Amygdalin is one of the nitrilosides, natural cyanide-containing substances abundant in the seeds of plants of the prunasin family that have been used to treat cancers and relieve pain. In particular, D-amygdalin (D-mandelonitrile-beta-D-gentiobioside) is known to exhibit selective killing effect on cancer cells. Apoptosis, programmed cell death, is an important mechanism in cancer treatment. In the present study, we prepared the aqueous extract of the amygdalin from Armeniacae semen and investigated whether this extract induces apoptotic cell death in human DU145 and LNCaP prostate cancer cells. In the present results, DU145 and LNCaP cells treated with amygdalin exhibited several morphological characteristics of apoptosis. Treatment with amygdalin increased expression of Bax, a pro-apoptotic protein, decreased expression of Bcl-2, an anti-apoptotic protein, and increased caspase-3 enzyme activity in DU145 and LNCaP prostate cancer cells. Here, we have shown that amygdalin induces apoptotic cell death in human DU145 and LNCaP prostate cancer cells by caspase-3 activation through down-regulation of Bcl-2 and up-regulation of Bax. The present study reveals that amygdalin may offer a valuable option for the treatment of prostate cancers.

PMID: 16880611 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]

Although the untainted study above specifically mentions prostate cancer, it is believed that a wide variety of cancer can be similarly controlled. Many studies conducted within the sphere of influence of the Rockefeller family have been critisized as tainted or deceptive in their characterization that the injected laetrile substance is at all toxic at the recommended levels, and not jepardized by any dietary enzyme triggers as was done in the poisoning of the dogs study PMID: 203726 .

This is a common myth, but an injury to the breast cannot cause breast cancer. An injury can cause scar tissue to form, which can be mistaken for cancer. All lumps should be evaluated by a doctor.

Well I don't think NIH has funded that study yet, however, if you are so foolish/talented as to be able to punch yourself there, I would consider other negative consequences of such behavior. For example, DBBS (Deep Breast Bruising Syndrome) is one that affects millions of breast-pummeling Americans a year. It is nothing to scoff at.

No, you can not. You can get cancer if a cell in your breast keeps dividing abnormally causing a tumor.
