Abstract

Histological verification is an important part of cancer diagnosis, but though regarded as essential it is not invariably so. The diagnosis of cancer can in certain cases be made by clinical examination alone, and in many cases e.g. basal cell carcinoma, this is almost the rule. In other cases it is the clinical pattern of disease which is diagnostic — there are few who would dispute the post-mortem finding of a cancer of the lung with node and/or disseminated metastases and there are numerous analogies where the pattern of the disease can be conclusive.
