Excerpt from Cancer: And Its Non-Surgical Treatment

An attempt has been made in the following pages to study cancer from all its angles and aspects, except that of operative surgery, which latter has been exploited heretofore, quite to the exclusion of any possible medical consideration of the disease.

It has been a difficult task to compress within a certain compass sufficient data, and to make each chapter satisfactorily full and clear, so that all would be understood. For the amount which has been written concerning cancer in books and periodicals is so enormous that the process has entailed an amount of reading and study hardly imaginable.

As will be seen, the work of Dr. James Ewing, one of the most competent and careful pathological scientists living, has been drawn on very largely, along certain lines, with his kind personal permission. It was not intended to slight the views of other pathologists, but Dr. Ewing's masterly work on neoplastic diseases covered the pathological ground so completely, and presented various subjects in such a definite and seemingly conclusive manner, and embraced so much of the work of others, that it was thought best to adhere largely to his descriptions and statements.

It was not considered wise or necessary to attempt any illustrations, either clinical or histological, as these have appeared so abundantly in other works accessible in the libraries.

Nor was it thought desirable to dwell too long on the various attempts which have been made to control cancer by many different means, such as various sera, etc., or the theories on which their employment was based. Some good results have been claimed from many of them, but there are few reliable statements or data in regard to end results.
