The Treatment Of Cancer Of Mouth And Pharynx
Treatment of cancer in the mouth and /pharynx relied heavily on cautery and escharotics until 1858, when Virchow published “Pathology of Tumors” demonstrating the cellular origin, of cancer, and, that abnormal and atypical growths were accounted for by cellular prolification. He argued, therefore, that complete destruction was necessary to produce a complete cure.
