Fungating, ulcerated carcinoma (cancer) of the breast. This is an extreme, advanced case of breast cancer: most instances of the disease are diagnosed by mammography (X-ray) screening, or found as a small lump by the woman during self- examination. The mortality of breast cancer is high; early detection by mammography & appropriate treatment (by combinations of surgery, radiotherapy & chemotherapy) greatly improves the prognosis.
