“Other” ~ Breast Cancer — Risk / Phenotype

Factors unrelated to direct standard BRCA1/2 mutations, and those in other major- and moderate-risk genes, on breast cancer risk/expression; includes family history, unusual BRCA1/2 features such as splice-site mutations, SNPs/common polymorphisms, promoter methylation, double heterozygotes, etc.
