I was wondering if someone could tell me a Cache Wipe actually removes from the device?
Is there any risk to doing it? (Can it break anything?)

thanks for your advice

Cache in general is a temporary and quick access data used which are used by system and your apps. Temporary information(data) created or used by an app or a system is part of cache(recovery logs e.g.) partition. However if you do not have to, do not wipe the cache partition. It makes system and apps run faster by "anticipating" actions, like preloading images e.g. for your apps and more.

It's just temporary files. No more harmful than deleting the Temp and temporary internet files folders on a Windows.
