Breast cancer is one of the most diagnosed cancers around the world. Metastases are the leading cause of death related to breast cancer. It has been noticed, in recent years, that non-coding long RNAs (lncRNAs) are strongly related to the development and progress of breast cancer. Current studies have noted that lncRNAs can be divided into two subgroups: those who are ongogenic and those who serve rather as tumor suppressors. This review analyzes the correlation of RNA with the development of breast cancer.
