Caption: Lung cancer. Scanning electron micrograph of cancer cells proliferating inside alveoli (air sacs) in a human lung. The alveolus in the lower right is almost completely blocked. These cells are part of an adenocarcinoma, a malignant tumour derived from glandular epithelial tissue. Lung cancer is one of the most common and dangerous forms of cancer. Fewer than 10% of patients survive for five years after diagnosis. The cause of the disease is not always clear; although cigarette smoking is known to cause other forms of lung cancer, such as squamous cell carcinoma, the link between tobacco and adenocarcinoma remains unproven.
