Abstract

Although there are many questions to be answered in order to understand the biology of breast cancer1, the four basic ones that will be the subject of this work are: what causes breast cancer? how does breast cancer start? what determines the susceptibility of the gland to undergo carcinogenesis? what makes an initiated cell progress to a fully malignant one?
