Caption: Melanoma cancer cells. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of melanoma cells, the most serious of human skin cancers. Melanoma is a tumour of melanocyte cells that produce the melanin pigment in skin. Here, large rapidly dividing (malignant) cancer cells are seen with tiny projections which enable the cells to be motile and to spread. Melanoma is able to spread from the skin through the blood, lymph, or across a body cavity to other parts of the body. This cancer is most common in people exposed to strong sunlight for a number of years. The disease is often fatal. Magnification x1986 at 6x6cm size. Magnification: x7500 at 8x10 inch size.
