Caption: Breast cancer. Colour-enhanced X-ray mammogram of a female breast in side view, showing cancer. The breast is orange at centre; its connective tissue and milk ducts make it appear fibrous. A cancerous tumour is seen within the breast as a yellow core with radiating contours of colour. At far right are ribs (blue) of the ribcage. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Most deaths from breast cancer occur when the cancer is not detected early enough and it spreads to other parts of the body. Mammography is a special X-ray technique used to visualize soft tissues of the breast as a means of screening women for breast cancer, and to detect tumours at an early stage.
