In some families breast cancer aggregates as the predominant site-specific neoplasia and in others in association with defined malignancies. In the case of familial adenocarcinomatous (Lynch II-syndrome) it occurs together mainly with colorectal and endometrial carcinoma whereas in the case of the Li-Fraumeni/SBLA-syndrome it belongs to a wider spectrum including sarcoma, brain tumors, lung and laryngeal cancer, leukaemia and adrenocortical carcinoma. The occurrence of these malignancies is reported as they were observed in the families of 600 women suffering from breast cancer.
