Case study. Breast Cancer
A 44-year-old patient presents with lump in the chest of approximately 2 cm in diameter. There is a slight dimple over the location of the lump and when the lump is manipulated it seems to be attached to the surrounding tissue. A lumpectomy is performed and the mass is sent to pathology. The pathology report comes back and the mass is confirmed to be an estrogen receptor negative, a progesterone receptor negative and a her2/neu receptor positive breast cancer. What are some of the risk factors for breast cancer? What tumor suppressor genes are associated with breast cancer? What tumor oncogenes are associated with breast cancer? Compare and contrast tumor suppressor genes from oncogenes?
