Research published today by leading scientists identifies critical research gaps in breast cancer risk and prevention, concluding that actions must be taken to reach vital tipping point in risk estimation and prevention.
New research led by a scientist at the University of York reveals that a process that forms a key element in the development of the nervous system may also play a pivotal role in the spread of breast cancer.
Charity hopes breast cancer could be overcome within 40 years but greater investment, collaboration and renewed focus is vital.
Research facilitated by leading research charity, Breast Cancer Campaign, has identified the ten critical gaps that exist in breast cancer research, which, if not urgently addressed, could see the loss of around 185,000* lives by 2030.
