Cancer Cluster

What defines a cancer cluster? I grew up in the Mayfair section of Philadelphia where we lived in neighborhoods the consisted of 60 homes, 30 on each side divided by the street. In the past decade there have been 1-2 women per year diagnosed with some type of cancer on the same side of the block. Off the top of my head, I can count 11 cases 7 of which are next to one another then spaced out every other house. I wrote a letter to Christie Whitman when she was the head of the EPA, but she must have been to busy to read it and respond back.
If there is anyone that can define it, please do... My Mother was one of the cases..
