Caption: Immune system battling a cancer cell. T lymphocyte cells (orange) surrounding a cancer cell. T lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that recognize a specific site (antigen) on the surface of cancer cells or pathogens and bind to it. Some T lymphocytes then signal for other immune system cells to eliminate the cell. The genetic changes that cause a cell to become cancerous lead to the presentation of tumour antigens on the cell's surface.
