Cancer and Oncology Q 167

A male client with a cerebellar brain tumor is admitted to an acute care facility. The nurse formulates a nursing diagnosis of Risk for injury. Which “related-to” phrase should the nurse add to complete the nursing diagnosis statement?
    A. Related to psychomotor seizures
    B. Related to impaired balance
    C. Related to visual field deficits
    D. Related to difficulty swallowing

Correct Answer: B. Related to impaired balance

Option B: A client with a cerebellar brain tumor may suffer injury from impaired balance as well as disturbed gait and incoordination.

Option A: Psychomotor seizures suggest temporal lobe dysfunction.
Option C: Visual field deficits, difficulty swallowing, and psychomotor seizures may result from dysfunction of the pituitary gland, pons, occipital lobe, parietal lobe, or temporal lobe — not from a cerebellar brain tumor.
Option D: Difficulty swallowing suggests medullary dysfunction.
