Caption: Secondary bone cancer. Light micrograph of a secondary (metastatic) cancer tumour developing in bone. This malignant tumour, called a carcinoma, has grown from cancer cells that have spread from the kidney. Cancer cells here are pink with large nuclei, typical of rapidly dividing cells. On the right is a piece of bone (pink). Clear spaces are fat cells. This type of tumour contains numerous blood vessels, which here are filled with red blood cells. The tumour has replaced any normal bone marrow. Sample stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Magnification x125 at 35mm size.
