Cancer and Oncology Q 10

Nurse April is teaching a client who suspects that she has a lump in her breast. The nurse instructs the client that a diagnosis of breast cancer is confirmed by:
    A. Breast self-examination
    B. Mammography
    C. Fine needle aspiration
    D. Chest X-ray

Correct Answer: C. Fine needle aspiration

Option C: Fine needle aspiration and biopsy provide cells for histologic examination to confirm a diagnosis of cancer. During the procedure, a needle is inserted into the lump and a sample of tissue is taken for examination.

Option A: A breast self-examination, if done regularly, is the most reliable method for detecting breast lumps early.
Option B: Mammography is used to detect tumors that are too small to palpate.
Option D: Chest X-rays can be used to pinpoint rib metastasis.
