Caption

Light micrograph of normal female breast (mammary gland) tissue from a non pregnant woman, showing two glandular lobules (pink) surrounded by connective tissue (blue). The white ovals ((top) are adipose tissue. Lobules are the milk-secreting areas of the breast, each consisting of an aggregate of branching ducts, called alveolar ducts, which end as blind-ended ductules (seen here). Alveolar cells in the walls of the ducts are responsible for manufacturing & secreting milk. It drains into the lactiferous ducts & flows on to the nipple. The lobules are supported by a dense layer of connective tissue & fat. Magnification: x180 at 35mm size.
