In the 3 decades from 1910 to 1940, more progress took place in cancer research and the diagnosis and treatment of cancers than during the prior centuries combined. The discovery of several carcinogens, precancerous conditions, and hereditary cancers adduced new thoughts about the genesis of cancers. Even though diagnostic radiology and radiation therapy became apposite specialties, surgery retained its primacy in the treatment of cancer patients. The delineation of new and distinct neoplastic… 
A note from history: Landmarks in history of cancer, Part 6
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.
Pathfinders in oncology from the beginning of modern surgery of intracranial tumors to the introduction of the Pap smear
TLDR
During the period from 1922 to 1942, several carcinogens were identified in coal tar, industrial oils, and petroleum, and radium was added to x‐ray as a potential carcinogen, and the dependency of prostatic and mammary hyperplasia and carcinoma on naturally occurring hormones was established.
Albert C. Broders, tumor grading, and the origin of the long road to personalized cancer care
TLDR
A brief historical vignette celebrates the 100th anniversary of Albert C. Broders’ first paper, showing that numerical tumor "grading" allowed him to predict patient prognosis, and the starting point for the long road to personalized cancer care.
Sphingolipids as Mediators of Breast Cancer Progression, Metastasis, Response and Resistance to Chemotherapy
TLDR
By integrating sphingolipid signaling into the molecular characterization of breast tumors, new opportunities for targeted intervention are identified and it is increasingly apparent that modulating sphingoipid levels in tumors will be an effective and powerful method for the treatment of breast cancer.
Genome-Based Multi-targeting of Cancer: Hype or Hope?
TLDR
The past, present, and future of preventing and treating cancer, usually a disease of lifestyle, is discussed in this mini review.
Liver metastases from colorectal cancer. Different strategies and outcomes
TLDR
When choosing different strategies for sCRLM patients, the results imply that the patient selection and drop-out from the planned intervention are poorly known and should be selected according to treatment logistics, tumor symptoms, and surgical feasibility.
Antibody Therapeutics in Oncology
TLDR
Efficacy and safety of ADCs for cancer therapy has recently been greatly advanced based on innovative approaches for site-specific drug conjugation to the antibody structure, and is now beginning to yield therapeutics with defined, uniform molecular characteristics, and unprecedented promise to advance cancer treatment.
Peptide Hydrogels – Versatile Matrices for 3D Cell Culture in Cancer Medicine
TLDR
The biochemical functionalization of peptide hydrogels and how this functionalization, coupled with desired hydrogel material characteristics, affects tumor cell behavior in 3D culture is discussed.

Pioneer physicians and surgeons who gave their attention to discoveries in anatomy, physiology, and chemistry established the foundations for tumor pathology, surgical oncology, and medical oncological research.
The Treatment of Carcinoma of the Breast by Extirpation of the Tumor and Roentgen Irradiation
TLDR
These outstanding results, in spite of the fact that they were confirmed by Halberstaedter (2), produced no noteworthy change in the methods of treating breast cancer is evidence of the difficulty with which a well established method of treatment may be changed.

Review of the earliest written descriptions and reports of cancer show that ancient physicians and surgeons made gradual progress in understanding cancer. It became clear to most of them that early
Cancer of the Thyroid: Its Radiosensitivity
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to estimate the radiosensitivity of the various types of carcinoma of the thyroid by the increasing use of radiation in the treatment of these tumors.

Primary Carcinoma of the Lung
The interest in primary carcinoma of the lung aroused in the last decade by the increase, real or apparent, in its incidence, has been greatly stimulated in the last few years by the recognition of
The use of radium in cancer of the female generative organs
TLDR
The indications are that in these groups the authors have had their greatest advance, and it is believed that these results cannot be duplicated without the use of massive doses of radium or without thoroughly radiating the parametrium.
The Nucleo-Cytoplasmic Ratio and Cancer
TLDR
It is only in the past year at Brussels that owing to the kindness of Professor Dustin, who has put at my disposal his very valuable collection of sections of malignant tumors, I have been able to complete my work, which illuminates in detail this particular phase of the question.
