Background: Breast cancer is the most prevalent kind of cancer worldwide and the main reason why people die from cancer. Represents 18% of all malignancies in women. and second most common type of cancer after lung cancer.

Results: According to the findings of the current study, ESR1, EGFR2 and were both considerably elevated in breast cancer patients (P<0.05), and they also had a tight relationship, and human vitaminD3 was a decrease in patients with breast cancer on the probability level (P<0.05).
