Caption: Colon cancer cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of human colon cancer cells. Abnormal cytoplasmic projections are visible on the cell surface. Colon cancer arises in the epithelial cells that line the large intestine. It is a common form of cancer in the Western world and may be linked to a high-fat, high-meat diet. It often occurs in association with other colonic diseases such as ulcerative colitis and familial polyposis. A partial colectomy, removing the diseased segment of the colon, may succeed in treating the cancer if it has not spread too widely. Magnification unknown.
