Mathematical and Computer Modelling
A diffusion model of the prevascular stage of tumor growth is presented. The basic feature of such a model is the diffusion of growth inhibitor, which is produced at a spatially non-uniform rate within the tissue. Regimes of limited and unlimited tissue growth are determined, and the consistency of this and simpler models is discussed in the light of observational results.
