    This is more a biology question than one directly about cancer itself.   In cancer the genetic material doesn't replicate correctly and produces a mutated cell that is able to self replicate out of control.   If you want something more detailed than that find a sight that is involved in cancer research.

    Tricky question to answer.

    While any cancer has a basis in a mutation at the celular level, in the vast majority of cases this is localised to the cancerous cells.

    Chromosonal changes are usually identified in the germ cells (egg and sperm) and while there aregenetic markers identified at this level that can indicate an increased risk of breast cancer, they are not caused by someone contracting breast cancer.
