New role of genes in breast cancer

e age have different breast density. It also helps explain why having a family history of breast cancer is a risk factor for the disease," says Hopper.

"There may be many genes involved with breast density, and for an individual woman it will be the combined effect of these genes, rather than a single mutation in just one "high-risk" gene like BRCA1 or BRCA2, that determines her risk," he says.

Finding the breast density genes and identifying their mechanisms will help understand the causes of breast cancer.
