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. Cancer cells are dark purple, with abnormally large nuclei indicating rapid cell di- vision. Pale pink cells are connective cells, laid down in response to the tumour. The deep pink bod- ies are deposits of the protein keratin, produced by the cancer cells. White blood cells (black dots at top left & right) are infiltrating the diseased tissue. Squamous carcinomas arise from keratin- making epithelial cells, which are found on the skin and in smokers' lungs. Stained with eosin and hematoxylin. Magnification x125 at 35mm size.
