Caption: Cervical cancer cell division, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The surface of these two daughter cells (originally a single cell) are covered in long microvilli (hair-like projections), characteristic of cancer cells. Due to genetic defects, cancer cells divide rapidly in a chaotic manner. They may clump to form tumours, which often invade and destroy surrounding tissues. Cancer of the cervix (the neck of the uterus) is one of the most common cancers affecting women and can be fatal. Magnification: x1300 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
