From 1914 to 1923 inclusive, 450 patients with carcinoma of the uterine cervix entered my clinic; 345 of the patients had primary carcinoma, and 104 had a recurrence following a panhysterectomy. We decided to study the incidence of age, the number of pregnancies, the symptom that induced the patient to apply for medical aid, and the duration of the symptom from the time of its appearance until the patient sought medical assistance. All the patients were treated with combined
radium and roentgen-ray therapy; statistics stating the number of patients that have passed the three and the five year periods free from recurrence and who are anatomically healed and subjectively well, in addition to other data, are included in the accompanying tabulations.
GROUPING OF CASES
Primary carcinomas of the uterine cervix are divided into four groups for the purpose of clinical study. The grouping is based solely on the findings by
