Caption: Lung cancer. Light micrograph of a section through a tumour from a patient with lung cancer. This is a squamous cell carcinoma, the most common form of lung cancer. Cancerous cells are dark purple, with abnormally large nuclei typical of rapid cell di- vision. The intervening pink cells are connective tissue, laid down in response to the tumour. The deep pink material at the top is keratin, a tough, protective protein produced by the cancer cells. Squamous cell carcinomas arise from keratin-prod- ucing epithelial cells, which are found on the skin and in smokers' lungs. Lung cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Stained with eosin and hematoxylin. Magnification x125 at 35mm size.
