Not illustrated. 1915 Excerpt: ... for cancer of the stomach, uterus and breast, is included as an interesting illustration of the utility of even crude statistical methods in rendering aid to the cause of cancer research. Mortality from Cancer in Ireland, by Organs and Parts, and Duration of Illness, according to Sex, 1901 It is brought out by this interesting analysis that the proportion of cancer deaths with a previous disease history of over 3 years was 3.7 per cent. for males, and 4.2 per cent. for females, of the cases with a known duration. For cancer of the stomach the corresponding proportion was 0.9 per cent. for males, and 1.6 per cent. for females; for cancer of the uterus, 3.2 per cent.; and for cancer of the breast, 7.8 per cent. In the majority of cases of known duration the disease had been in existence or had been observed by the patient for at least six months or over. For cases of known duration the proportion of cancer deaths with a previous history of over 1 to 2 years was 21.1 per cent. for males, and 24.1 per cent. for females. Accepting the principle laid down by the American Society for the Control of Cancer, that "in the early recognition and treatment of the disease lies the hope of a cure," it is self-evident that a fatal termination could in many cases be prevented by the avoidance of needless and hopeless delay.t Degree of Malignancy The previous duration of cancerous disease is primarily conditioned by the type of the cancerous growth, which is subject to a varying degree of malignancy, in turn affected by the powers of disease resistance, which are also subject to wide variations. There are, for illustration, the slow growing tumors, arising from fibroblasts, called fibromata, and the rapidly growing fibrosarcomata, which, according to F. B. Mallory.
