There is no need to SHOUT. I have adapted your title to remove the capital characters.

I am not sure if there can be a complete list or database of Breast cancer genes anywhere, but this article from 2012 contains genes containing driver mutations:

Then there is of course the COSMIC database. Now if you search there for 'breast cancer' with a query like this:

A better gene set might be retrieved by going to the COSMIC gene census:

and filtering the gene list for 'breast' (723 hits)

You receive over 24000 genes with mutations in one or the other sample. Most of them I propose are passenger mutations, see also: Driver And Passenger Mutations In Cancer

I believe that for a small number of known genes that is constantly expanded and changed, you will be better served by doing a comprehensive literature search through PubMed etc first. The task is to stay aligned with the current state of research and of course find more recent publications than the one I gave first:
