Abstract
There is revealed the new phenomenon of the different decoration of malignant and nonmalignant areas in histological tissue sections. The technique of polarized light transmission microscopy and thin (free) layer of nematic liquid crystals (NLC) deposited on the surface of tissue frozen section is cheap, expressive and provide extra information to the pathologist and objective diagnosis of tumors in difficult cases. The phenomenon is connected with different surface tension and contact angles of malignant and benign tissues. The previously unknown physical property of malignant growths may help to understand some intrinsic reasons of the cancer aggressive behavior. A new concept of selective photo treatment on pathology regions that show themselves the most regardless for patient health is suggested.
