CANCER OF THE BREAST .
By Dr. Sophia Brunson
A doctor was standing in the
hall of a hospital when he saw
one of his former patients being
wlfeeled from the operating
room. He immediately - inter-
viewed the surgeon and was told
that it was an advanced case of
icancer which necessited the
removal of the bre&st and large
portions of the contiguous tis-j
“Too bad,’! said the surgeon.
“Neither surgery, radium, nor
x-ray can save her now; it i,s
too late. If I had gotten her a
year ago, she could have been
“Let me see!” said the inter-
rogating doctor. “It has. been
about that long since she left
my office determined not to take |
my advice about that lump in
her breast. I told her that it
would be a simple operation to
take it out. If it proved can-
cerous after being examined, we
could take the breast off and
cure her. She sat her judgement
above mine and refused.” |
“Maybe you didn’t insist
enough,” said the surgeon.
“I said all that I could, but;
maybe I am somewhat to blame,
hut it is too date now for regrets.
I’ll try to scare the next one out
of her wits, then.maybe I’ll have

Breast cancers are increasing
and no one knows why. Women
have been warned repeatedly to
seek medical advice as soon as
they discover a Iuhip or a sore
about the body, particularly if
the breast is involved. Strange
to say, the majority of them con-
ceal the condition hoping that
it will pass off. As a rule it does
not. Not every lump in the breast
is serious; most of them are en-
larged milk glands which will
probably never give trouble at
all. But suppose that they are

In trying to acount for the in-
crease in cancer, some writers
explain that more people live to
reach the cancer age. There is
little to this, for more young
people now have cancer than for-
merly. However, the laiety are
better informed on the subject
than they once were, and most
of them are going to their physi-
cians for an -early diagnosis
This helps to swell the cancer
statistics. Still the disease is in-'

of science to combat it.
