      Carcinoma of the uterine cervix is usually of the epidermoid type. Accurate histological diagnosis by biopsy is essential; biopsy risk is very slight. Cervical carcinoma is best treated by a combination of radium and deep x-ray therapy; by the use of the deep therapy before radium application, the danger of fatal peritonitis is minimized. Surgical treatment has proved inadequate in comparison to radiotherapy.
      Carcinoma of the uterine corpus is usually of the glandular type. Diagnosis can generally be made by a curettage but should be suspected in patients who commence to have discharge or bleeding after the menopause. Carcinoma of the body is best treated by a course of deep x-ray therapy, followed promptly by a panhysterectomy.
