Blood tests for sex hormones in women could help predict their risk of developing breast cancer, a study has shown. Postmenopausal women with high blood levels of oestrogen and testosterone are more than twice as likely to be at risk of the disease as those with low levels of the hormones, a team from Cancer Research UK reported. The study is published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (April 17).
