In this essay I endeavour to offer some examples plucked from the historical and geographical reality of the Carribbean, and use them to illustrate the importance of considering the social dimension of cancer as an item worthy of intense study via well-funded research: an aspect of cancer as worthy of study as the basic science issues relevant to the disease.
The reason for my concern that such matters be addressed in a systematic manner is that some social and historical aspects of cancer threaten the progression from bench research to practical application.
