Breast cancer surgery. Image 10 of 20. Surgeon using a cautery tool (yellow, lower centre), an instrument that burns through tissue, to excise a malignant (cancerous) tumour (centre) from a woman's breast. Metal retractors (upper left and right) are being used to hold back the tissue surrounding the tumour. In this procedure, tumours are being removed from the breast and axillary (underarm) lymph nodes as part of a wide local excision (WLE) operation. For a series showing this procedure, see images M122/468 - M122/487.
