Surgeon Dr. William Wood looks over the tumors in Mary Namata's breast during a weekly screening for breast cancer at the Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, July 17, 2013.  Namato has had the lump in her breast for roughly four years, but like many other women in Uganda, she first tried traditional medicine of boiled herbs to cure her tumor before approaching the Mulago Hospital or the Cancer Institute. A team of American doctors from the University of Washington visited and worked alongside Ugandan medical staff at the Cancer Institute and the Mulago Hospital--the primary two locations in all of Uganda for detection and treatment of Cancer.
