Caption

Light micrograph of a malignant tumour showing cancerous cells breaking away & migrating upwards from the tumour. A cancer arises through the transformation of a normal cell into one that escapes the usual controls of growth & differentiation. Instead the cell is large, divides rapidly & shows evidence of nuclear & chromosomal abnormality. The rate of growth, division & abnormality is greater among malignant cells than benign, but the distinguishing factor is the ability of malignant cells to invade surrounding tissue & colonize sites far distant from the original tumour, a process known as metastasis.
