Pregnancy and uterine cancer are conditions, fortunately, rarely associated. Winckel saw eight cases of cancer of the cervix uteri in a total of fifteen thousand cases of pregnancy. Stratz saw twelve in seventeen thousand nine hundred cases. Sutugin saw two in nine thousand, or, in other words, out of nearly forty-two thousand cases of pregnancies, observed in three great obstetric clinics, only twenty-two cases of cancer of the uterus occurred as a complication, roughly, one case in every two thousand cases of pregnancy. Like all statistics these have only a relative value. Consulting obstetricians see relatively more cases than do general practitioners, and apparently see as diverse results of treatment. For example, the much-to-be-lamented late Dr. Fordyce Barker reports, in a discussion, three cases which were delivered, without any unusual complications, of living children at term, the mothers also recovering from childbed without serious drawbacks.
