Caption: Bladder cancer. Light micrograph of a section through a transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder. TCCs are malignant tumours that arise from the transitional epithelium lining the bladder. Unlike normal epithelial tissue these cells are poorly differentiated and contain large, dark- staining nuclei - typical of rapidly dividing cells. TCCs vary from well-differentiated, less malignant papillomas to highly aggressive, poorly differentiated carcinomas. Cancer of the bladder accounts for 5% of all UK-diagnosed cancers. The disease tends to recur and is often fatal. Magnification: x150 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue
