Caption: Breast cancer. Ultrasound scan of a 60-year-old woman's right breast with a small 5.6 millimetre diameter adenocarcinoma, a cancerous tumour (indicated by cross) formed from glandular structures in epithelial tissue. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. The cancer can invade surrounding tissues and spread to other parts of the body (metastasis). Regular self-examination of the breasts, and regular screening using ultrasound and mammography, can help to diagnose the cancer early. The most common treatment after early detection is the surgical removal of the tumour, combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. If the cancer has spread, the prognosis is poor.
