The mind is for seeing, the heart is for hearing (Saudi Arabian proverb).

Abstract

These "reflections" offer a glimpse into Cancer sociology, through the eyes of a pathologist intimately involved in interdisciplinary management, at an Oncology centre. The interaction of a specialist, usually relatively remote from direct patient contact with cancer patients, evolved from diagnostician to confidante and co-traveler along a difficult journey. The range of shared experiences, the mutual human and humane accruals of this camaraderie are traced through a quarter century of living within the world of cancer and with those afflicted by it.
