A mathematical model for the growth of tumor cords incorporating the dynamics of a nutrient

ABSTRACT
We analyze the growth of a tumor cord in cylindrical symmetry, when nutrient is supplied by the central vessel and by a distributed peripheral source. The model equations describe the diffusion and consumption of the nutrient, together with the dynamics of growth of the cord and the formation of necrosis in the tumor or in the surrounding normal tissue. The different possible patterns of evolution are studied. One of the main points addressed is the possibility that nutrient diffuses through regions in which necrosis occurs.
