Studying Components that Makeup Cells and Tissues
To understand cancer and treatments, begin by studying components that makeup cells and tissues. Choose a specific tissue type (e.g., adipose tissue).
What major tissue type does your chosen tissue example belong to? What gross and histological features do all tissues in this major tissue type exhibit? What subcellular details make your chosen tissue example distinct from others in the same grouping? How do these subcellular features make your chosen tissue type specialized for its function at specific locations? Examine how possible medical conditions can arise in your chosen tissue type due to abnormal organelle structure or function.
