Females are more prone to breast cancer than men due to constant exposure of breast cells to estrogen. The individuals having first-degree family history of BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation are highly prone to breast cancer. Ethnic specific mutations of BRCA1 and BRCA2 are found in Ashkenazi (European) Jewish origin and in some families in Iceland, the Netherlands, and the Balkans.

Breast cancer is classified into three major groups as follows: 1) operable breast cancer, 2) locally advanced breast cancer and, 3) metastatic breast cancer (Johnston et al, 2008). Operable breast cancer is characterized by the presence of malignant cells within the milk ducts and other regions of the breast, which sometimes may include the local lymph nodes. The lumps or growths can be removed surgically provided that at the time of operation the patient does not have overt metastases.

The first type is ductal carcinoma, which begins in the ducts that carry milk to the nipples. This is the most common type of breast cancer. The second type of breast cancer is lobular carcinoma, which begins in the lobules, the milk-producing parts of the breast. Breast cancer can also originate from other areas of the breast, but this is rare. Breast cancer can either be noninvasive or invasive. Noninvasive implies that it has not attacked other breast tissues. When breast cancer is noninvasive, it is known... ...
