Compared to women sleeping eight hours a night, women who slept at least nine hours were 46 percent more likely to die of breast cancer, the study found. After up to 30 years of follow-up, the women who got more sleep were also 34 percent more likely to die of other causes.

The study, which is to be presented at the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer conference in Liverpool, found that one in six women with breast cancer visit their doctor with a symptom other than a lump.
