Abstract

In the preface the author points out the great frequency of uterine tumors. Fibroids occur oftener than any other tumors. Cancer of the cervix is the most frequent malignant growth. The first chapter deals with cervical polyps. Most important is the second chapter, devoted to cancer of the cervix. For statistical purposes, classification is provided. Norris recommends repair of every cervical laceration as prophylaxis. He recommends treatment of cancer by radium for some cases combined with trachelectomy. The value of the x-rays is discussed. For cancer of the body of the uterus, panhysterectomy is the treatment of choice. The next chapter deals with myoma of the uterus. Norris explains the contraindications to irradiation, which is the most preferable treatment. The last chapters deal with unusual growths, such as sarcoma of the body of the uterus and the tumors of the chorion.
