Cancer and Oncology Q 38

Nurse Amy is speaking to a group of women about early detection of breast cancer. The average age of the women in the group is 47. Following the American Cancer Society guidelines, the nurse should recommend that the women:
    A. Have a mammogram annually
    B. Perform breast self-examination annually
    C. Have a hormonal receptor assay annually
    D. Have a physician conduct a clinical examination every 2 years

Correct Answer: A. Have a mammogram annually

Option A: The American Cancer Society guidelines state, “Women older than age 40 should have a mammogram annually and a clinical examination at least annually [not every 2 years].

Option B: All women should perform breast self-examination monthly [not annually].
Option C: The hormonal receptor assay is done on a known breast tumor to determine whether the tumor is estrogen- or progesterone-dependent.
Option D: A physician checkup every 2 years will not detect early signs of breast cancer.
