A simple model of avascular solid tumor dynamics is studied in the paper. The model is derived on the basis of reaction-diffusion dynamics and mass conservation law. We introduce time delay in a cell proliferation process. In the case studied in this paper, the model reduces to one ordinary functional-differential equation of the form that depends on the existence of necrotic core. We focus on the process of this necrotic core formation and the possible influence of delay on it. Basic mathematical properties of the model are studied. The existence, uniqueness and stability of steady state are discussed. Results of numerical simulations are presented.
