This abstract presents the biomechanical model that is used in the European ContraCancrum project, aiming at simulating tumor evolution in the brain and lung. The construction of the finite element model as well as a simulation of tumor growth are shown. The construction of the mesh is fully automatic and is therefore compatible with a clinical application. This biomechanical model will be later combined to a cellular level simulator also developed in the project.
