Excerpt from The Journal of the Indiana State Medical Association, Vol. 20: Devoted to the Interests of the Medical Profession of Indiana; January to December, Inclusive, 1927
In women, near' or through the menopause, who have associated pelvic pathology with the cervical lesions, have definite indications for more radical surgery. It is better to do a complete re moval than it is to try to patch up other derange ments. Any diseased parts left behind are very likely to cause further disturbance.
The lot of the cancer patient, receiving the best known treatment, is unenviable. Her mental and physical torture is terrible and is made all the worse when she learns that her disease could have been prevented by relatively simple measures. Our problem as physicians is partly educational. We must insist on regular, periodic, complete physical examinations. We must be more active in a broader education of the public in the known facts regarding cancer.
