This paper deals with the analysis of the asymptotic limit towards the derivation of hyperbolic macroscopic equations for a class of equations modeling complex multicellular systems. Cellular interactions generate both modification of biological functions and proliferating destructive events related to growth of tumor cells in competition with the immune system. The asymptotic analysis refers to the hyperbolic limit to show how the macroscopic tissue behavior can be described by linear and nonlinear hyperbolic systems which seem the most natural in this context.
