If a woman has cancer in a body organ, other than her breast, does that put her more at risk for developing breast cancer?

If a woman has cancer in another organ she is not at higher risk of breast cancer unless she has one of the uncommon genetic defects.  For example, if a woman does not know she as a BRCA deletion and develops ovarian cancer, she is also at risk for breast cancer.  But thankfully this is not a common occurrence.
