The Anatomy Of Breast Cancer
Breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the breast begin to grow and divide uncontrollably, and eventually form a growth (tumour). It starts in the breast tissue, commonly in the cells lining the breast's milk ducts.
Our Anatomy of Breast Cancer Chart is professionally designed to inform healthcare professionals and patients. It covers the types of breast cancer, common diagnostic methods, stages, treatment options, and much more. This chart would be a great addition to any healthcare setting, clinic, consultation room, etc.
Featuring the popular TNM system for staging breast cancer, this chart provides an informative and educational view of breast cancer in a clear and concise format.
To allow patients to digest the information in their own time, we have created a user-friendly printable Anatomy of Breast Cancer Leaflet.
