No. This is not related to your breast cancer or any other cancer. The epithelial calls just indicates that the utineurine specimen was contaminated by your skin on the way to the collection cup. This is nothing to be concerned about at all. If your doctor needs a urine culture done, then you'll need to give a new sample. Hope this helps.
