Normal cell division

The illustration shows the normal division of healthy cells.

This illustration shows healthy cells with blood and lymphatic vessels in a sectional view.

In this illustration, a tumor has formed and is already displacing healthy cell tissue.


In this illustration, the displacement of healthy cells by cancer cells is more advanced and excessive growth of blood vessels supplying the tumor is evident. In addition, migrating cancer cells can be seen in the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels – the tumor is “spreading” (metastasizing).
