*An extract from a paper read to the Cape Town Branch of the South African Association of Surgeons on 15 August 1952. The degree of activity of a carcinoma of the breast is the most important single factor controlling the prognosis. Apart from that, inadequate treatment is the main reason for the poor results of treatment. A new method of staging of carcinoma of the breast is recommended. It is based on the clinical assessment of the existing pathology. It is recommended that the treatment should depend on the stage of the carcinoma.
