Caption: Breast cancer. The chest of a 60 year old woman with cancer in her left breast. The cancer is seen as dark lumps (tumours) above the nipple at right. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women. The cancer can invade surrounding tissue and spread to other parts of the body (metastasis). It is usually detected by self- examination or mammogram before it gets to this advance stage. Treatment is with removal of the tumour only, where possible, or complete removal of the breast. Surgery is often combined with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
