A stochastic model for cancer cell growth in any organ is presented, based on a single forward mutation. Cell growth is explained in a one-dimensional stochastic model, and statistical measures for the variable representing the number of malignant cells are derived. A numerical study is conducted to observe the behavior of the model.
