Why is surgery more successful in the treatment of the benign tumors than malignant tumors?
Benign tumors spread to other tissues which makes them more difficult to remove. Benign tumors are enscapulated so they are easier to remove.

Incorrect.

Skeletal muscle tissue would have striations and many nuclei.

List the three traditional types of cancer treatments and explain briefly how they work.
Surgery - removes cancer

Radiation - destroys dividing cancer cells

Chemotherapy - Uses drugs to stop actively growing cells.
The meninges

Skeletal
The connective tissue membrane that covers and protects skeletal muscles is called the:
Deep fascia
The removal of living tissue for microscopic examination is called
Biopsy
You want to design a membrane to protect a tube from the surrounding environment. The membrane must prevent substances from passing through the tissue and must also secrete a protective substance.
