Cancerous disease is of more frequent occurrence among women than men. Thus, it has been found that of the 11,662 persons who, during a period of five years, died from it in England (exclusive of the city of London), there were 8746 women and 2916 men. That is to say, three times as many women as men lost their lives through this terrible malady. The womb and the breasts are the favorite sites of malignant tumors in women. It is owing to this extra-ordinary predilection of malignant disease for these parts, that women suffer so much more than those of the other sex.
