Prolactin is a protein hormone of the anterior pituitary gland that was named for its ability to promote lactation. Prolactin is important in human breast development, and substantial laboratory and in vitro data suggest a role in mammary carcinogenesis. An increasing body of evidence supports the involvement of Prolactin in breast carcinogenesis, results of human prospective studies are limited, equivocal, and correlative. Our understanding of Prolactin function and its regulation and to expose its role in carcinogenesis still exists and fragmentary
