    Abstract

    THE mystery of new growths, their nature, treatment, and the possibility of prevention, has aroused more interest recently than at any other time in the history of medicine. For some years it has occupied the attention of research workers in every field probably more than any other of the great problems of disease. Innumerable facts and data concerning the subject have been recorded, yet we seem to be little nearer its solution than we were at the close of the last century.
