No, that is not a cause of breast cancer. Just bruising.

Cancer is created by your body's lymphatic system. It's not a reaction to force such as a blow. Breast cancer is generally a hereditary illness.

Breast cancer, like all other cancers, comes up when normal cells change so that they grow in an uncontrolled way. This uncontrolled growth causes a tumor to form. Punching and pinching will not cause this process to start.

This is a very old myth which has been disproved by recent discoveries about the process of cancer and how it develops. What might result from a traumatic tissue injury to the breast is a condition called traumatic fat necrosis. It appears a long time after the original injury or may develop spontaneously in women with very large breasts. It is characterized by painless benign lumps and sometimes a red, bruised appearance on the breast.
After researching this issue, I strongly suspect that this condition may have been misdiagnosed by 19th century and early 20th century doctors as cancer, especially in women who declined a biopsy or fluid draw. Or women with the condition may have understandably assumed it to be cancer. I believe that is part of the origin of this particular, long-lasting myth, which I myself heard repeated in the 1960s and 1970s.
