Caption: Breast cancer. Coloured X-ray of a woman's axillary (underarm) lymph ducts, showing metastasis (spreading) of malignant (cancerous) breast tissue (bright line running from upper left to centre). Cancer found in other regions of the body that has spread from the original cancerous tissue is known as secondary cancer. The prognosis of secondary cancer is poor. Treatment is with radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
