Tumours and Cancer


Tumours and Cancer

Mitosis and the cell cycle are carefully controlled processes, allowing cells to divide at the correct rate to replace damaged cells and to allow organisms to grow correctly.

Uncontrolled cell division can lead to ....

  • undifferentiated cells - not specialised
  • a mass of differentiated cells (a tumour)
  • a tumour damaging surrounding tissues, pressing on nerves and blood vessels
