Failure To Respond To ''STOP'' Signals

Normal cells obey signals from nearby cells. This prevents the cells from piling up or becoming too crowded.
Cancer cells ignore ''stop'' signals and will pile up on each other.

Cell division is a process by which cells reproduce. This happens to repair damage and replace dying cells. There are many safety mechanisms in place to make sure that cells divide normally. 

One such safety mechanism is cell:cell contact. When cells get too very close to each other, they all stop dividing.  Unlike normal cells, cancer cells ignore stop signals and continue to divide and pile up.
