It's not the thought of breast cancer that makes my toes curl in fear. It's the terrible side effects of chemotherapy. But here's a great piece of news a new test that can help predict who does and, importantly, who doesn't need chemotherapy has been approved for use in England and Wales.

Not all people react the same way to treatment. So it's great that tests such as these are being developed to help target treatments more precisely to our individual needs.
