The Clinical Causes of Cancer of the Breast and Its Prevention

Excerpt from The Clinical Causes of Cancer of the Breast and Its Prevention: With Analyses of a Hundred Cases This work is an inquiry into the Clinical Causes of Cancer of the Breast, and is the outcome of more than three years' study. I have carefully taken and analysed the histories of a hundred cases, and in the hope of being able to form some sound conclusions regarding the causes of Cancer in this region, i.e. conclusions which shall be justified by facts, I have made special inquiries into the following points: (1) Age; (2) State - Single or Married; (3) Family History - especially of Cancer and Consumption; (4) Menstruation; (5) Confinements - number of, rapidity with which they follow each other; Labour; Lactation - presence or absence of - duration of - manner in which it has been performed - use of applications; (6) Previous diseases of the breasts; (7) Injury; (8) Corsets - comfortable or otherwise; (9) Worry and anxiety; (10) Residences - situation of, near a river - whether dry or damp; Climate - Drainage; (11) Diet - consumption of meat - Australian meat, fish, salt. Uncooked vegetables, etc.; (12) Alcohol; (13) Miscellaneous, General Health, Occupation, Possibility of Infection, Cancer Houses, etc. This work is thus essentially a record of facts, upon which all the conclusions are based. All the cases have been admitted into the Cancer Hospital under my own care or that of my colleagues, to whom I tender my most sincere thanks for so readily placing all their available material at my disposal. I have also much pleasure in acknowledging my indebtedness to Dr. Henry W. Syers, for kindly overlooking the proof-sheets, and for many valuable suggestions.
