New genetic variants associated with breast cancer identified
Conclusion This large analysis of data has identified 65 more SNPs associated with an increased risk of developing breast cancer. These variations hadn't previously been associated with overall breast cancer risk. A second, smaller study published at the same time identified another 7 variations specifically associated with an increased risk of oestrogen receptor negative breast cancer, a type of breast cancer that's notoriously hard to treat. In total, these studies bring the number of SNPs associated with breast cancer to about 180. Although these are interesting findings, there are a few points to bear in mind: The vari...

The authors advocate for more accurate diagnostic tests to capture molecular irregularities between tumor cells. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
