Abstract In the midst of intense research for a chemical cure of carcinoma and with the widespread attention given to such efforts at present, the individual cancer patient still most needs to get rid of his cancer at the earliest possible date, and preferably by elements of treatment that have given relief for other similar patients. This involves early recognition and diagnosis, which are relatively easy in tumors of the tongue, mouth, jaws, neck, and face if the patient will report at an early date for observation. Unfortunately, there are somewhat silent areas which are dangerous ones, such as the posterior part of the tongue, floor of mouth, and pharynx, so that the first notice the patient has may be of someone's noting a lump of direct extension or of metastasis in his neck. Since these lesions tend to stay in the area even in late periods, attempts are considered, at References 1. Brown, J.
