Do cancer cells undergo mitosis at an abnormally fast rate?

1 Answer

literally we cant call a cell "cancer cell" unless its division is out of control


Mitosis is closely controlled by the genes inside every cell. Sometimes this control can go wrong. If that happens in just a single cell, it can replicate itself to make new cells that are also out of control. These are cancer cells.
so cancer cells do undergo mitosis at a fast rate.
