Abstract

One hundred patients in a tumor clinic were asked if they had experienced forewarnings of their illness. Thirteen responded positively. Two said they had been "cursed," four had premonitions, and seven had been told by others they would develop this illness. Only five of the 13 considered the possibility of a direct relationship between the forecast and the illness.
