This image shows a breast cancer tissue sample which tests positively for the estrogen receptor (ER). The tissue stained in brown shows the ER-positive cells, and in blue all other cells. Most of the cancerous tissue in the sample is brown, which means that this cancer is highly ER positive. The cancer is surrounded by connective tissue, which appears blue. The cancer attempts to fake milk production glands, appearing as white regions, which show that the cancer cells remember something of their origin as breast cells.
