Caption

Testicular cancer. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a testis (testicle), showing neoplastic germ cells (dark, circular), the precursors of testicular cancer. The cells are characteristically round and commonly found next to the basal lamina of the seminiferous tubule's epithelium. Above these premalignant cells are three Sertoli cell nuclei but other germ cells are absent. Also termed carcinoma-in-situ (CIS), the abnormal germ cells often have large amounts of glycogen (black dots) in the cytoplasm, as seen here. Magnification x2,000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
