About this book
A history of cervical cancer, from antiquity to the 21st century.
Cervical cancer is an emotive disease with multiple connotations. It has stood for the horror of cancer, the curse of femininity, the hope of cutting-edge medical technologies, and the promise of screening for malignant tumours. Ilana Lowy follows the disease from antiquity to the 21st century, tracing both medical progress and social change.
