Breast cancer is a world-wide, common malignant disease. In the last decade, researchers have demonstrated that breast cancer is highly heterogeneous. Intrinsic subtypes, i.e., categories of breast cancer with different gene expression profiles have distinct biological behaviors and responses to therapy. This novel classification, which does not represent pathological morphology nor tumor burden, has enabled us to understand that breast cancer is not one disease; personalized therapy based on each subtype may be critical. In this special issue of Cancers, we invite research and review articles that discuss clinical features, cancer biology, and the current management of, and future diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for, breast cancer.
