Breast Cancer Pictures
The fleshy part located in front of the normal adult human fairer sex is a fully developed “breast or mammary gland”. Male genders have mammary glands as well but normally remain underdeveloped throughout life in contrast to female mammary glands which shows physical changes during puberty for maturation process of female reproductive growth.
Lymph from the mammary gland largely goes to the lymphoid nodules on one side of the axilla region literally the armpit area and to a lesser amount alongside the sternal nodules beside the chest bone and as well as to the other breast and lymphoid nodules in the abdomen.
With breast cancer pictures, there is said to be abnormal mutation of human cells. Cells with abnormally low or abnormally large number of DNA predominantly denote cancer. Breast cancer is said to be fast progressing metastasizing speedily to different parts of the body thru lymphatic pathway.
The human body is microscopically made up of cells that by nature cellular reproduction or mutation is normal. Cancer would only ensue whenever there is an abnormal cellular reproduction, replication or mutation.
In addition, cancer cells spreading or metastasizing to various body organs such as bones for example is still the similar cancer that took place in the first place. Therefore, it is right or safe to say that mammary gland carcinoma, where carcinoma denotes cancer, is called metastasizing breast carcinoma and not bone carcinoma.
Diagnostic Tools to Identify Breast Cancer Pictures
MRI or magnetic resonance imaging is a diagnostic tool to determine if the suspected cancerous tissue is benign or malignant. MRI can sensitively identify minute streaks of calcium “micro calcification” which accounts for the predominant breast cancer detection in mammography.
Mammography or mammogram is done through the use roentgenogram machine to get breast cancer pictures to determine any abnormal mass in the mammary gland.
