objectbreastcancer:

The first large plastic 3D print of a tumor

Object Breast Cancer is a science/art project with the mission of giving a shape and form to an otherwise enigmatic danger. Caraballo-Farman sculpt shapes derived from 3-D MRI images of tumors, giving a “face” to a frightening enemy 
From their website: 

1.3 Million women in the world are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
For most, the tumor has no image.
It’s an invisible monster, an unseen malignancy.
