breast cancer, specifically ductal carcinoma
ductal carcinoma is a type of cancer that arises from the epithelial lining of ducts that channel milk from the glands (lobules) to the nipple
ductal carcinoma (like any other type of carcinoma) is considered invasive once it breaches the basement membrane

while it looks like someone stepped on this guy, the weird situation at the front end of this sperm is actually residual cytoplasm from spermatogenesis

lymph vessels
nobody seems to care much about these guys, yet your arm would swell up without them — there’s just enough net fluid leak from capillaries to cause problems in the absence of another set of pipes to return that transudate to the circulatory system
let’s have a little respect for lymphatics

acute megakaryoblastic leukemia
this subset of acute leukemia affects the megakaryoblastic lineage, which explains the multinucleation and cytoplasmic processes of these cancerous cells — in a non-pathological situation, however, pieces of mature megakaryocytes pinch off to form platelets
cancerous megakaryoblasts are also related to the pokemon, Gastly
I’d advise against catching this one though

turns out your brain is lined by gumballs…er…ependymal cells
ependyma is one of the four types of neuroglia in the central nervous system, constituting an epithelium-like layer that lines the ventricles and central canal of the spinal cord
it also produces cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
note that in the fetus (here), ependymal cells are not ciliated
