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.
