A two- and three-dimensional model with varying layer thickness close to actual shape of the breast was developed and analyzed using finite element techniques. Isotherms were obtained for both the normal and tumored breast. The results show that the surface temperature of a breast with tumor is higher than a normal one. In addition, the orientation of the tumor also had an effect on the surface temperature distribution.
