In the second half of the 19th century, most cancer patients were cared for by surgeons who exerted ascesis and limited their operations to 1 or 2 specific areas. To assist surgeons and other physicians in caring for their patients, pathologists described newly discovered entities, refined the microscopic classification of tumors, and introduced the grading of cancers. The discoveries of Rontgen and the Curies revolutionized the diagnosis and treatment of cancers. The search for the cause of…

TLDR
Although more advances were made in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers than any other period in history, the overall mortality rate of patients with cancer remained high and unchanged.
Pathfinders in oncology from the end of the 19th century to the first description of Ewing sarcoma
TLDR
It is important to emphasize that many of the initiatives and discoveries made in Europe in the second half of the 19th century were first put into clinical practice in the United States during the first 2 decades of the 20th century, including the use of x‐ray and radium for irradiation and as diagnostic tools.
A note from history: Landmarks in history of cancer, part 7
TLDR
The 25 years from 1970 and 1995 are the high‐water mark in clinical oncology, and this is the period when oncological turned from art to science, and the decline in cancer incidence and mortality demonstrated that cancer prevention and advancement in oncologists are pivotal to success in the crusade against cancer.

Oral Cancer: A Historical Review
TLDR
Modern oncologists and oral surgeons must learn a lot from their historic counterparts in order to avoid past unsuccessful efforts to treatment oral malignancies, and think that this disease might be linked to mechanisms not strictly dependent on environmental risk factors, and this might guide future research on oral cavity treatments towards strategical cellular and molecular techniques.
Evolution of Cancer Pharmacological Treatments at the Turn of the Third Millennium
TLDR
Today, cancer research is always aimed at the study and development of new therapeutic approaches for cancer treatment, and several researchers are focused on the development of cell therapies, anti-tumor vaccines, and new biotechnological drugs that have already shown promising results in preclinical studies, therefore, in the near future, it will certainly assist to a new revolution in the field of medical oncology.
Pathfinders in oncology from the time the causal relation between tobacco use and lung cancer was established to publication of the first Cancer Staging Manual by the American Joint Committee on Cancer
