Carcinoma (from the Greek karkinos, or "crab", and -oma, "growth") is a type of cancer that develops from epithelial cells.Carcinoma is a cancerous growth of surface tissues i.e. epithelial tissue of the digestive tract, skin, blood vessels, and various organs. Carcinoma cells tend to spread surrounding healthy tissues and give rise to secondary growth distant from the original tumour. The process of spreading cancer form one tissue to another is called as metastasis. In addition to the skin and digestive tract, carcinomas will develop in the reproductive tract, mucous membranes, lungs, and other internal organs and glands, including the liver, pancreas, thyroid, ovaries, and prostate. Cancers of the nervous system, blood, bone, and muscle are not carcinomas. The causal study on disease of the cancerous growth is referred to as Carcinoma pathology.
