Abstract

The human body is made up of many types of cells. Each type of the cells has the special functions. Most of the cells in the body grows and then divide in an orderly way to form new cells as they are needs to keep the body healthy and working properly. The cells will divide too often and without any order when they lose the ability to control their growth. The extra cells from a mass of tissue are called tumors. The implementation of parallel algorithm for the simulation of human tumors’ growth is a new invention nowadays. The human body is made up of many types of cells. The cells divide too often, without any order and lose the ability to control their growths are called tumors. However, some tumors are not really cancerous because they cannot spread or threaten someone’s life. Medical ultrasound is producing the visual images based on echoes that occur in acoustic interface. These echoes contain information that studies the various breast tissues. A lesion is localized if its echo pattern is different with the surrounding medium.
