Caption: Lung cancer cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two lung cancer cells forming from one cell by mitotic cell division. They are still joined at centre. These large rounded cells have an uneven surface with many cytoplasmic projections which may enable them to be motile. Typically, cancer cells are large and they divide rapidly in a chaotic manner. Clumps of these cells form tumours which possess the ability to invade and destroy surrounding tissues. Smoking tobacco cigarettes is the main cause of lung cancer. Normally the cancerous lung or area within the lung is surgically removed. Magnification unknown.
