breast cancer hereditary

The most important things we inherit from our parents are their genes. One set of gene from mother’s side and another from father’s side make up a pair of gene and in human bodies most genes are found in pair.
Now, it is written in the genes, how we will look, how we will grow and how healthy we will be through our lifetime. When there is some abnormality in one of the genes, they stop functioning in the way they are expected to do. The genes that have such abnormalities are called mutated or altered genes.
