Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Breast cancer surgery. Image 4 of 6. Metal retractors holding back the skin of a woman's armpit to reveal the axillary (underarm) lymph nodes. The node ducts are blue because a tracing dye was injected to enable the surgeon to locate them. In this procedure, tumours are being removed from the breast and axillary lymph nodes as part of a wide local excision (WLE) operation. For a series showing this procedure, see images M122/491 - M122/496.
