Breast cancer in a 72-year-old female patient. This is an advanced case of carcinoma, with severe inflammation and ulceration of the skin. Most instances of the disease are diagnosed by mammography (X-ray) screening, or found as a much smaller lump during self-examination. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Early detection and appropriate treatment (by combinations of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy) greatly improve the prognosis.
