A stochastic model of solid tumor growth based on deterministic Gompertz law is presented. Tumor cells evolution is described by a one-dimensional diffusion process limited by two absorbing boundaries representing healing threshold and patient death (carrying capacity), respectively. Via a numerical approach the first exit time problem is analysed for the process inside the region restricted by the boundaries. The proposed model is also implemented to simulate the effects of a time-dependent… CONTINUE READING
