Cancer's 'internal wiring' predicts relapse risk

The "internal wiring" of breast cancer can predict which women are more likely to survive or relapse, say researchers, BBC reports.

The study shows that breast cancer is 11 separate diseases that each has a different risk of coming back.

The hope is that the findings, in the journal Nature, could identify people needing closer monitoring and reassure others at low risk of recurrence.

Cancer Research UK said that the work was "incredibly encouraging" but was not yet ready for widespread use.

The scientists, at the University of Cambridge and Stanford University, looked in incredible detail at nearly 2,000 women's breast cancers.

They went far beyond considering all breast cancers as a single disease and beyond modern medicine's way of classifying the tumours.

Doctors currently classify breast cancers based on whether they respond to the hormone oestrogen or targeted therapies like Herceptin.
