When you say scientific magazine, do you mean a magazine such as Seed or Scientific American? Or a journal, such as Nature or Cell?

I suggest you go to your library and try to read an issue of each... But there is a world of difference between magazine for lay people (Sci Am) that publish journalists account of what science is up to and professional journals who are publishing results from the lab to be read by other researchers.

Maybe you could lead us better by telling us exactly what your "report" is talking about? Is it new findings based on research you have personally done? Or is it just a review of the role between molecular biology and breast cancer?

If your report is just a review and you don't already have a Ph.D or a good standing in the scientific community I wouldn't waste your time by trying to submit it to a journal.

If you don't have some sort of amazing journalistic background I wouldn't waste your time by trying to submit to a magazine either... unless it's quite literally a flawless piece of work. Magazines are able to piece together information on their own (hence their staffs of science writers).

Your best bet would be to get some sort of blog to post it.
