In 1802, as members of the Society for Investigating the Nature and Cure of Cancer, a group of eight physicians and surgeons formulated a list of 13 questions to serve as a basis of further inquiry into the nature of malignant neoplasms (SCHOENBERG, 1975). One of these 13 queries addressed.the issue of whether “... the existence of cancer in one part afford(s) a presumption that there is a tendency to a similar morbid alteration in other parts of the animal system.” Their question was followed by reference to several anecdotal accounts of cancer involving both the breast and uterus (MEDICAL COMMITTEE OF THE SOCIETY FOR INVESTIGATING THE NATURE AND CURE OF CANCER, 1806).
