Caption

Breast cancer, coloured mammogram (X-ray). The tumour is the red area at lower left. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, affecting around 10% of all women. If it is detected early, surgical removal of the tumour or the entire breast can effect a cure. Such surgery is often complemented by follow-up radiotherapy or chemotherapy. If the cancer has spread beyond the breast then the prognosis is poor. Routine mammography screening can help to detect tumours at an early stage. Self-examination of the breasts can also be performed.
