Breast Malignacy

Breast cancer affects up to 1 in 8 women in their lifetime. 20-25% of breast cancers occur in women over 70 years of age.  Most screen detected (mammogram and/or ultrasound) cancers have a good prognosis and long term survival for many women.



The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped gland, located just below the larynx, wrapping itself around the trachea (windpipe). The gland produces thyroid hormone (thyroxine) – which controls most of the metabolic functions in the body.



The parathyroid glands are usually quite small (the size of a grain of rice), closely associated with the thyroid. They control calcium metabolism in the body by release of parathyroid hormone (PTH). This results in an increase in calcium levels in the body.
