Breast cancer. Ultrasound image of an axial section through the right breast of a 46-year-old female patient with infiltrating mucinous carcinoma (cancer, dark, centre). The tumour measures 18 millimetres in diameter. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women. The cancer can invade surrounding tissue and spread to other parts of the body (metastasis). Treatment is with removal of the tumour only, where possible, or complete removal of the breast. Surgery is often combined with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
