Breast cancer. Coloured 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a woman with breast cancer. There is a malignant (cancerous) tumour (blue) in the patient's right breast. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women. The cancer can invade surrounding tissue and spread to other parts of the body (metastasis). Treatment is with the removal of the tumour only, where possible, or complete removal of the breast. Surgery is often combined with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
