What kind of tumor did Sigmund Freud have



Sigmund Freud, the famous neurologist and founder of psychoanalysis, suffered from oral cancer, specifically a malignant epithelioma, which is a form of squamous cell carcinoma. The cancer was located in Freud’s mouth, in the region of his right upper jaw and palate. Freud’s tumor was linked to his heavy cigar smoking habit. Over the course of 16 years, he underwent more than 30 surgical procedures to treat his condition, along with receiving prostheses to aid with defects resulting from the removal of the tumor and surrounding tissues. Despite the extensive treatment, Freud continued to suffer from the disease until his death in 1939.
