    When a dysplastic polyp spreads towards the muscle with the lymph vessels and blood vessels, this is cancer. There is lots of chaotic growth where nuclei are enlarged (more DNA replication), and these cells do not carry out their function. Grading is based on the number of cancer cells and how chaotic the growth is. Stages are based on the size of the cancerous region, if it has crossed the barriers and is near lymph nodes and if it has metastasised. There is also a wbc immune response in the area- many therapies are based on increasing this.

    An example of colon cancer. A view of the lumen which is the inside of the organ, and also the peritoneal cavity, which allows the process of peristalsis, which is the movement of the bowel. A pollup is formed, followed by Dysplasia, which changes the shape of the cells structure. This starts to divide uncontrollably among the normal cells, and grows all the way through down to the muscle. Surgical cure is usually the best cure for this kind of cancer (colon). Defines Mestastasis as the point when the cancer cells leave the original region and enter a tiny blood vessel. Discusses the grade and the different stages of cancer. Shows us the lymphocites which are the immune cells (plasmacells) that produce antibodies.
