Breast cancer is one of the well-known malignant tumors among women. In spite of attempts to classifying breast cancer according to its histological and molecular properties, it is almost considered as a dilemma in treatment. Nowadays, public and medical attentions have primary focused on foods with anti-cancer properties to alleviate the cancer problems. Flavonoid components such as Quercetin (Qu) as dietary substances with high attention of ordinary people might provide potential of alternative or complementary medicine in breast cancer. With regard to the wide range of health benefits of Qu, researchers have been generally convinced to bring Qu as natural compounds in cancer therapy. Moreover, the high cost of standard cancer treatments and the failure of most conventional treatments have led the medical community to pursue cost-effective prevention and treatment. As a result, a great deal of concentration is attracted to diet/cancer reciprocal action. Therefore, this review study has aimed to identify what has revealed the critical properties of Qu such as anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and even its effect on proliferation, angiogenesis, or apoptosis that are considered as anti-tumor property to enhance breast cancer treatment.
