American researchers have discovered four additional genes that can cause breast cancer have mutations. Data about the study published in Cancer Discovery.
Scientists from the Institute of Oncology. Sunstone conducted in-depth analysis of the genetic material of a person. Note, today in the prevention of breast cancer for analysis samples are taken in BRCA1/BRCA2. Now we are talking about learning a series of new genes: RINT1, MRE11A, RAD50, NBN.

The presence of these genes is not proof of the presence or mandatory manifestations of cancer. Genes only increase the likelihood of disease, as do environmental factors and lifestyle of the person. The discovery will help doctors in assessing the risk of breast cancer. This will allow more accurate to identify the disease at an early stage when treatment provides rapid therapeutic effect with minimum side effects.
