Healthy breast, coloured X-ray. The white area is dense glandular tissue responsible for milk production. It is surrounded by less dense fatty connective tissue. Breast X-rays (mammograms) are regularly performed on women to see if there are any tumours present. Breast cancer is common but can be treated if it is caught early.
