Human breast cancer is a group of neoplastic diseases that vary in histological appearance and biological behavior, including the potential for invasiveness and metastasis (Lipmman and Dickson, 1988). Several epigenetic factors influence the development of breast cancer. These seem to be related to the timing and degree of exposure to hormones and growth factors, such as age of menarche, menopause, first pregnancy, and breast feeding (Lipmman and Dickson, 1988). In addition, approx 5% of all. breast cancers are clustered in families that have a high incidence of early onset of the disease (Hall et al., 1990).
