Excerpt: ... tumours were admitted to the clinic, and of these it is worth noting that 83, or 272 per cent., were inoperable owing to delay in seeking surgical assistance. It is also of interest to note that in no case was local recurrence or internal metastasis observed after three years. Mr. T. Bryant has recorded from his own experience 46 cases of amputation of the breast for cancer in which the patients survived the primary operation from five to thirty-two years.

My friend Mr. Pridgin Teale has told me of seventeen instances in which his patients have survived from eight to twenty-six years.
