The earliest drawings or writings from many ancient civilizations in all parts of the world have provided descriptions of cancers. Bone cancers and urinary bladder cancers have been diagnosed in Egyptian mummies. Writings of Hippocrates contained descriptions and recommended therapeutic procedures for cancers. It is clear from these writings that ancient physicians were aware that cancers exhibited spatial and temporal characteristics of progression and ultimately led to death. The natural histories of cancers describe and, where possible, explain the progressive steps and stages of cancer evolution in individuals and populations.
