Excerpt from Transactions of the Twenty-Fifth Annual Session of the Homeopathic Medical Society of the State of Michigan: Held at Battle Creek, May 15 and 16, 1894
From the mesoblast are developed the muscles, bones, cartilage, connective tissue, blood vessels, lymphatics and their lining endothelium.
Carcinoma has its origin from tissues derived from either the epiblast or hypoblast and never from the mesoblast, so that we may not expect to find a cancer starting from a muscle or bone.
For our present purpose we will divide carcinoma into two principal divisions, viz.: Epithelioma and glandular carcinoma. Of the epithelioma we will make also two divisions, viz: Squamous and columnar. As the name would indicate, the squamous variety starts from locations where this kind of epithelium is found. The function of this epithelium is always to protect, thus giving this kind of cancer no power to secrete, as is the case with the glandular variety, according to some Opinions. These cancers may occur wherever this epithelium is found, e. G., the tongue, the os uteri, the epidermis, etc.
If we will keep in mind the locations of this variety of epithelium and the method of growth of this kind of cancer, it ought to aid us in making a diagnosis and forming an opinion.
