London, May 10 (ANI): An early warning test could soon be able to detect breast cancer.

British scientists have come closer to developing such a test, which could save the lives of millions of women.

They have discovered five more cancer-causing genetic mutations on top of the 13 already known.

"By finding more of these genes we may be able to develop a test that can predict more reliably a woman's risk of developing breast cancer," the Daily Express quoted Professor Doug Easton of Cambridge University as saying.

His report is published in the journal Nature Genetics. (ANI)
