Breast Cancer



The etiology of breast cancer remains mainly unidentified. Risk factors linked with breast cancer can be clustered into three comprehensive contributing factors: i. family history (hereditary) factors, ii. hormonal reproductive factors

environmental factors (DeBruin and Josephy, 2002).


Polymorphisms of drug-metabolizing enzymes may influence risk of breast cancer from environmental chemicals, dietary agents, and endogenous steroids (DeBruin and Josephy, 2002).

Consequently, owing to estrogen's proliferative features, its cellular stimulus can have adverse outcomes in patients conveying large amounts of these receptors intracellularly (Yager and Davidson, 2006).


Contrivance of carcinogenesis continues to be mostly unidentified, but overexpression is linked with speedy tumour growth, reduced survival, increased risk of relapse subsequent to surgery, and poor reaction to conventional chemotherapeutic agents (Yager and Davidson, 2006).
