Caption: Prostate cancer cells, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). These cells, from a line that was obtained from a prostate cancer that had metastasised (spread) to the brain, have been cultured on glass plates. The uneven surface of these cells is typical of cancer cells. The cells may clump to form tumours, which often invade and destroy surrounding tissues. The prostate is a small gland found in men just below the bladder, surrounding the urethra, the tube urine passes through. It produces a fluid that forms part of the semen. Prostate cancer is most prevalent in men over 50 years of age. Treatment is with hormone therapy, chemotherapy, or surgical removal of the prostate. Magnification: x930 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
