Abstract: Cancer of the breast has, since classical times, been recognized as one of the most important of clinical affections. The superficial position of the tumour makes it one of the few growths which can be easily diagnosed. In fact, the generic name of all malignant tumours, the word 'cancer', stems from the similarity which the ancient investigators noticed between the infiltrative growth in the breast and a crab. The importance of this condition may perhaps be better appreciated from the fact that nearly 8,000 women developed breast cancer in 1962 in the British Isles.
