    The aim of this work is to investigate light scattering properties of tumorigenic and nontumorigenic cells. Specifically, both wavelength dependent and polarization dependent light scattering properties of cells from a multi-step carcinogenesis model have been measured. Evidence for differences in the light scattering properties of the cells is presented.
