A consideration of cancers of par­ ticular organs provides an appreciation of the value of geographical pathology, an insight into methods of study, and clues to its obvious potential in terms of pathogenesis and prophylaxis.

As has been noted, rates of incidence and prevalence contain relatively few errors. Two examples of tables of these less fallible figure will serve to indicate their usefulness. On the basis of reports of cancer morbidity in New York State, Goldberg and others* have deduced the probability of developing cancer. Their figures are reproduced in Table III. The table is of importance, not only for its picture of the probable incidence of cancer generally, b u t also for the particular organs affected.
