    EDITOR —Delay in the diagnosis of cancer is universally considered to be unacceptable. The results of the study of treatment delay and survival in women with endometrial cancer in Scotland are therefore counterintuitive.1 Crawford et al found that delay and survival were inversely related.

The significance of these difficulties is that the context for how delay is counted and captured needs to be understood. Changing incidence and delay in testicular cancer in southern Norway.

These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread. Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements.

While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they can also have other causes. Timely and accurate calculation of cancer incidence rates is hampered by reporting delay, the time elapsed before a diagnosed cancer case is reported to the cancer registries.

HER2/neu was originally described as an oncogene in rat neuroblastomas in the early era of cancer molecular biology research.
