  Odds of beating breast cancer hinge on family connection

Photo of article There was a time when people thought that breast cancer affected the lives only of older women. Developments in cancer research have shown that this is not the case. While the risk of breast cancer increases as people get older, this harrowing disease can affect people who are even in their late twenties. Now comes news that while the chances of developing breast cancer are to some degree inherited, chances of survival also run in the family. The latest online journal Breast Cancer Research suggests that if a woman succumbs to breast cancer, her daughters or sisters are over 60% more likely to die within five years if they are also affected by the disease.
