Breast surgery. Surgeons carrying out surgery to remove cancerous lumps from a woman's breast. One of the surgeons is using a blood-stained scalpel, while the other holds a cauteriser (blue). Cauterisers use heat to seal broken blood vessels, stopping bleeding. The surgeons are wearing surgical caps, face masks and gloves to maintain a sterile environment. Photographed in the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, Italy.
