Graph shows statistically significant differences (p < 0.05) in the mean intensity of the m/z peaks in normal tissue and in cancer (*=q value (false discovery rate (FDR)-corrected p value) ≤0.001). Range bars represent the interquartile range. There were 18 peaks that increased in cancer within the phospholipid range (600–850 m/z); 6 peaks increased in normal tissue within the triglyceride range (850–1000 m/z). a.u. arbitrary units
