Alcohol Concern fears 3,000 cases each year of the killer disease could be the result of alcohol consumption, which is thought to increase oestrogen production.
New research has highlighted the link between alcohol and breast cancer prompting new warnings to women to drink less

More than a million British women aged over 50 took part in the Oxford University study which saw them fill in a questionnaire after having a breast scan.
The study found those who drink a glass a day were between 7 and 12 per cent more likely to get breast cancer, according to a fact sheet published by charity Alcohol Concern.
Experts encouraged women to have more alcohol free days and drink less.
