Understanding the anatomy of the breast is important for early breast cancer detection and effective treatment.
In this animated clip, the parts of the breast are highlighted and their functions briefly explained. While much of the breast is composed of fat, cancers primarily develop in the lymph nodes, lobules, and ducts of the breast.
