Breast cancer, is a disease that occurs when DNA damage is not repaired by the DNA repair mechanism. The aim of this study is to determine whether the individual has breast cancer as a result of the tests performed on female individuals from the same family, as a result of genetic transmission from his/her own life history as well as familial life history, that is, from first-degree relatives with blood ties. Eight female patients of different ages, selected according to certain characteristics, were tested in the central laboratory of Al-Awael. These tests are: C-reactive protein (CRP) analysis, Lactate dehydrogenase enzyme (LDH) analysis, Estradiol (E2) hormone analysis, Progesterone hormone analysis, Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) analysis, Carcinoma antigen 15-3 (CA15-3) analysis, Hematological examination for blood count (Complete Blood Count-CBC), Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) control. In addition, age, height, weight values of patients given; ESR, CRP, LDH, CEA, Progesterone, E2, CA15.3 levels were measured. As a result of the examinations, it was seen that the majority of the results obtained were close to each other. We can say that similar table and graphic results between families clearly show that breast cancer may have a genetic role. Breast cancer cases in the family can affect the outcomes of individuals belonging to the same family. The variability or normality of the results does not eliminate the cancer or its recurrence. Therefore, it can be said that women or patients with breast cancer or a family history of breast cancer should be under constant control.
