Hanson, D. S. (1996).  A Place to Shine: Emerging from the Shadows at Work.
"Unfortunately much of what we have been busy doing to fix our organizations have been surface cures. The cancer I am talking about has deeper roots. l am talking about a cancer that eats away at the very soul of our organizations: the relationships between people, their work, the people they work with, and purposes beyond the immediate. The cure for this cancer requires more than a quick-fix program. It calls for new relationships and a change of heart." (p. xii)
Hawthorne, N., Bradley S. E., & Long H. E. (1978).  The Scarlet Letter: An Authoritative Text, Essays in Criticism and Scholars.
"A third group—'those best able to appreciate the minister's peculiar sensibility and the wonderful operation of his spirit upon the body'—see the letter as a psychic cancer that gradually manifested itself physically." —Roy R. Male (p. 334)
Klein, N. (2008).  The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.
"'The use of cancer in political discourse encourages fatalism
and justifies "severe" measures—as well as strongly reinforcing
the widespread notion that the disease is necessarily fatal.
The concept of disease is never innocent. But it could be argued
that the cancer metaphors are in themselves implicitly genocidal.'

—Susan Sontag, Illness as Metaphor, 1977" (p. 177)
