C. G. Watson and D. Schuld (see record 1978-03712-001) attempted to study the relationship between psychopathology and subsequent development of neoplasms. It is argued that their results, which indicated no apparent connections between these variables, are limited due to methodological flaws, both relating to sample selection. Though there is no empirical evidence of psychological causation of neoplasms, the Watson and Schuld study is not the one to lay this issue to rest.
