Caption: Prostate cancer cell division. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two prostate cancer cells in the final stage of cell division (cytokinesis). During this stage the cells' cytoplasm divides. Here, the cells are joined by a long cytoplasmic bridge. Cancer cells are typically large and they divide rapidly in a chaotic, uncontrolled manner. They may clump to form tumours which invade and destroy surrounding tissues.
