a major new genome project from the national institutes of health finds similarities between certain breast and ovarian cancers.

the study could change the way some women are treated for cancer...

the researchers found that one of the deadliest types of breast cancer is actually closer, genetically, to a kind of ovarian cancer than it is to other cancers originating in the breast.
