Prostate cancer masses
Prostate cancer is the second most frequently diagnosed type of cancer (skin cancer is first), and 15% of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their lifetime. Research has long used cancer cell lines growing on a flat surface to study abnormal cell behavior, but cells on a 2D surface differ considerably from the 3D structure of tissues and tumors as they exist in the body. Recent research has moved towards studying cancer cell lines in a 3D matrix model, allowing scientists to reveal the complex interactions that better mimic tumor growth and dynamics as they actually occur in tissues.

"We have to stop CONSUMING our culture. We have to CREATE culture. DON’T watch TV, DON’T read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your OWN roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are — NOW — is the most immediate sector of your universe. And if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered. You’re giving it all away to ICONS. Icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that, you want to dress like X or have lips like Y… This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion. What is real is you, and your friends, your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And, we are told No, you’re unimportant, you’re peripheral — get a degree, get a job, get a this, get that, and then you’re a player. You don’t even want to play that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world."
