In brief: Not transmitted
It is essential that you know that breast cancer is not "transmitted" like an infectious disease.
It is not contagious (though there is a mouse form that is passed mother-to-daughter). A woman develops breast cancer through mutations over the course of many years. Hope this is the answer you sought, and good luck.

In brief: Multiple reasons
Most likely multiple factors at play including genetics, exposures (including alcohol), and hormonal factors.
