Until now, most progress had been in other cancers, including lung cancer and melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer. The incidence is more in urban than rural women.

I'll never forget that uncomfortable knot in my stomach when I was nine and found out that my favorite time of year was just a sugar-coated version of something scary and unfamiliar.

Mutation carriers may also be helped by a type of drug called PARP inhibitors. "In addition, young women cannot smoke, try to keep their weight within a normal BMI limit, do self breast exams and see primary caregivers for a physical every year so that they can have a clinical breast exam".

"With incidence continuing to rise, and survival progress now stalling, we simply can not afford to let such clear chances to prevent thousands of deaths pass us by", said Baroness Morgan.

An organised population-based breast screening programme using mammography is the best proven way to detect cancers.
