An exactly solvable spatial model of clonal selection in cancer
Two of the hallmarks of cancer are the accumulation of driver
mutations which increase the overall survival of cancer cells,
and their ability to spread. Here we describe an exactly
solvable mathematical model of a tumour featuring replication,
mutation and local migration of cancer cells. The model
predicts a quasi-exponential growth of large turmours, even
if different fragments of the tumour grow sub-exponentially
due to e.g. oxygen and space constraints.
