Estradiol plays an important role in the genesis and development of human breast cancer and endometrial carcinoma. It is synthesized primarily in the ovary, but also in the placenta, testis, and possibly the adrenal cortex. Estradiol is also produced by testicular Leydig tumors, as well as by Sertoli tumors of the testis and ovary. It is also produced in mammary gland carcinoma, and carcinoma of the adrenal cortex.
