    Normal and cancerous cells have different mechanical and adhesion properties, but the reasons for this remain unclear. Atomic force microscopy studies show that the brush layers on the surface of normal and cancerous cervical cells are different, which could lead to new approaches for detecting and studying cancerous cells with mechanical methods.
