New information about a gene that could determine an increased risk of breast cancer.

Researchers say women who have mutations in the "P-A-L-B-2"  gene have a 1 in 3 chance of developing breast cancer.

The gene is most associated with breast cancer, after the BRCA genes.
British scientists looked at several hundred women with the rare gene mutations.
They say if a woman carries the mutation- she should undergo additional breast cancer screening.
