Healthy breast. Mammogram (X-ray) of a healthy breast. Dense white areas are the fibrous tissue which makes up much of the breast's mass. A mammogram is taken to check for tumours that are too small to be found by physical examination alone. The successful treatment of breast cancer depends on its early detection, when surgical removal of the cancer is still viable.
