Caption: Breast cancer: mammogram of a female breast showing (at top) a large cancerous tumour (uneven white mass) that extends to the skin surface and also a smaller, benign fibroadenoma - the smaller, rounded lesion in the lower part of the breast. Mammography is a special X-ray technique that is used to visualize soft tissues of the breast as a means of screening women for breast cancer. Fibroadenomas commonly arise in the breasts of young women under 30 & may also arise through hormone imbalance in older women approaching menopause. Whilst the fibroadenoma is small & well-defined, the cancer is large & uneven.
