Breakthrough cancer research studies DNA

New research may produce tests which can predict an individual's chances of developing cancer.

    Scientists say they have found dozens of DNA markers that could help predict a person's risk of developing certain types of cancer.

    It means tests could be used to find people at greatest risk and help them take preventative action.
