Figure 4. Image of the tumor sectioned in half, with detail to one of its nodules. It is possible to observe a nodule that microscopic analyses could not conclude whether it was completely extirpated from the patient.
Figure 5.
Figure 5. Microscopic view of the part of the tumor where the nodule was sectioned. It is possible to observe that cancerous cells were present in the nodule, and there is no margin of normal cells, which leads us to believe that there are still cancerous cells in the organ.
