Breast cancer cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a breast cancer cell. The cell has an uneven surface with many protrusions (upper centre & lower right). Typically, cancer cells are large and they divide rapidly in a chaotic manner. Clumps of these cells form tumours which can invade and destroy surrounding tissues. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. Magnification unknown.
