Interleukin-17 (IL-17) family proteins are involved in the control of infections. When unrestrained, these cytokines contribute to the development of chronic inflammatory diseases. The IL-17 family contains 6 members: IL-17A to F. In this review, we outline the current knowledge on the roles of each IL-17 member on breast cancer.
