Caption: Thyroid gland cancer. Light micrograph of a section through a thyroid gland medullary carcinoma. The cells of the malignant (cancerous) tumour (neoplasm) resemble those of bone marrow. It arises in the cells (C cells) of the thyroid gland. Tightly packed small cells (pink) are separated by smooth protein fibre tissue (amyloid, red). Medullary carcinomas cause the C cells to produce calcitonin (thyrocalcitonin) hormone, which lowers the levels of calcium and phosphate in the blood. Medullary carcinomas are often associated with tumours of other organs (multiple endocrine neoplasia, MEN). Magnification unknown.
