Molecular Diversity in Breast Cancer Cancer arises through an accumulation of specific mutations which alter the phenotype and proliferation of cells. Cytogenetics and molecular analysis have revealed an array of aberrations and genes which can be implicated iIi a proportion of breast cancer cases. When considering breast cancer there are clear situations where there is a family history of predisposition. This is seen classically in BRCAI and BRCA2 carriers, which are the most common, but other predisposition genes such as the ATM gene in ataxia-telangiectasia and the p53 gene in Li-Fraumeni syndrome are other examples.
