Fractal hypothesis is both challenging and technical issue of mammary cancer. We conduct a simple discrimination on the basis of box-counting dimension. Moreover, we discuss on statistical distributions of fractal dimensions for both mammary cancer and mastopathy. Thereby, we detect significant differences in the underlying distribution between the two groups. A multifractal analysis on the basis of a wavelet based approach has been conducted. Discussion on alternative cancer therapy and cancer prevention is provided.
