Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Breast cancer surgery. Image 6 of 6. Surgeon isolating a woman's axillary (underarm) lymph node using forceps (upper left). The node is blue because it has been injected with a tracing dye to enable the surgeon to locate it. The skin is being held back by four metal retractors. In this procedure, malignant (cancerous) 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.
