Caption: Light micrograph of cancerous tumour cells. A cancerous tumour arises through the transformation of a normal cell into one that escapes the usual controls of growth & differentiation. Instead the cell is large, divides rapidly & shows evidence of nuclear & chromosomal abnormality. The rate of growth, division & abnormality is greater among malignant cells than benign, but the distinguishing factor is the ability of malignant cells to invade surrounding tissue & colonize sites far distant from the orignal tumour - the process known as metastasis. (Compare with photo G450/010, which shows normal cells).
