Excerpt from Clinical Notes on Cancer: Its Etiology and Treatment; With Special Reference to the Heredity-Fallacy, and to the Neurotic Origin of Most Cases of Alveolar Carcinoma
The following pages seek to convey, as brieﬂy as possible, the practical experience of several years' work among cancerous patients. I have abstained from quoting rare cases which served to inculcate no useful lesson; but, on the other hand, have endeavoured to emphasize those points of clinical importance which seemed to me misconceived or unduly neglected; and, in one especial particular, to point out the fallacy of a widely-prevalent view, which I believe to work much mischief. No attempt has been made at elaborate description or exhaustive investigation; but the impressions re ceived through constant familiarity with common every-day cases, and the deductions to which they gave rise, are set down without prejudice. How ever imperfectly this has been done, I trust that the present little work, as a conscientious record of such observations, will not be found altogether useless.
