Can breast feeding avoid breast cancer?

Hello. Okay I have two questions for you.. So here's question oneI've read online that women breastfeeding reduce their chances of getting breast cancer, and that men who drink breastfed milk reduce their chances of getting prostate cancer.Is is okay, is it healthy to have your milk flowing by your husband when your NOT pregnant?My second questions is this:I have a twinge in my right breast, it feels like a small sting that's itchy, is there something bad that would be causing this? Or is it just normal, maybe meaning I'm growing or something?

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern it is not like that if the mother feeds the her own child then it may reduce the chances of breast cancer in her body and nothing else, prostrate malignancy is complete different thing and it can not be prevented with what you asked here, for what you have feeling inside your breast need clinical examination and investigation too if found something specific in clinical examination, hope this information may helps takes care and have a nice day.
