Starting at the left image 0 shows abnormal cells in duct lining or sections of the breast giving an increased risk of developing cancer in one or both breasts. Image 1 shows cancer in breast tissue, with the tumour being less than 1inch across in size. The 2nd image shows a tumour less than 2 inches wide, and a possibility of cancer spreading to the axillary lymph nodes. Image 3 shows the tumour measuring larger than two inches across in size and cancer has spread to axillary lymph nodes.
