The treatment of cancer of the uterus is one of the important questions of the day. Without treatment the disease is a hopeless one and usually causes death within two or three years.

The accepted treatment for cancer of the uterus at the present time is hysterectomy; and, without entering into details, it may be stated that cases thus operated on before the disease has apparently invaded the parametria have the following results: The primary mortality of the operation is from 5 to 10 per cent. Adenocareinoma of the corpus uteri is cured by hysterectomy in about 75 per cent. of the cases. Epithelioma of the cervix uteri is cured in about 10 per cent. of the cases. Less than 10 per cent. of cases of adenocarcinoma of the cervix uteri are cured by hysterectomy.

Perhaps these figures would be more accurate if it were stated that this is the general average rather than the results secured by early operation.
