Endocervical adenocarcinoma. Light micrograph of a cervical smear showing malignant adenocarcinoma cells. Adenocarcinoma is a rare type of cancer found in glandular tissue. Here, a papillary cluster of cancerous cells is seen (at centre) surrounded by pink-stained squamous epithelial cells. The cancerous cells are of an abnormal shape with enlarged, dark staining nuclei, indicative of rapidly dividing tumour cells. Endocervical adenocarcinoma is the most common cervical adenocarcinoma. Papanicolaou stained cells. Magnification: x100 at 35mm size.
