Compare and contrast malignant and benign tumors.

Choose one of the six options to fully discuss.

1.  Discuss the difference between benign and malignant tumors. Give an example of each. What may cause these tumors?

2.  Discuss your view on women getting a preventative mastectomy (meaning they have not been diagnosed with cancer) because they have tested positive for the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. Does the age of the woman make a difference in this decision?

3.  Read, “In Person: Radiotherapy” from Chapter 19. Share your thoughts on this story. In the original version of this story  the woman made a statement that she feels “like one of the luckiest people in this world.”  Why do you think she may have said this.

4.  Several forms of X-Ray Studies are included in Chap 20. Discuss four different forms of diagnostic x-rays. Give examples of when each would be used.

5.  Discuss the difference between x-rays and gamma rays. How are each used? Give an example of when each would be used.

6. Discuss ultrasound. When would this form of diagnostic imaging be used? Why may this form of diagnostic imaging be preferred over another? Give examples of each.

7.  Read. “In Person: CT and MRI” from Chapter 20. Discuss the difference between the two imaging studies. Which one would you prefer? When would a CT be ordered? When would an MRI be ordered?
