Abstract

The presence of a family history of breast cancer is a significant risk factor for the development of breast cancer. Although about 20–25 % of all breast cancer patients will have a family history of breast cancer, only 5–19 % of all breast cancer patients are likely to inherit an autosomal dominant high-penetrant gene for breast cancer.
