The Evolution of Surgical Oncology
Providing a description of the history of surgery, which is considered the main therapeutic option for a disease once absolutely incurable, is extremely complex. Cancer is the disease which perhaps more than any other summarises man’s past and present fears in the face of his own vulnerability — as claimed and described by Cosmacini and Sironi  in their book “Il male del secolo” (“The disease of the century”) which accurately portrays the history of tumor disease.
