For this assignment, you will review several case studies on various types of cancers. You will create a PowerPoint presentation on any three of these case studies, following the guidelines described below.
PowerPoint presentation should include the following about each cancer:
Are there any signs and symptoms of this cancer?
Are there any risk factors which may be genetic and/or lifestyle related? Any possible preventive measure?
Is there any recommended screening procedure and appropriate diagnosis for cancer?
What are the traditional treatment options? Any side effects?
Are there any recommendations for complementary and alternative medicine treatment options for the cancer that may help ease side effects and improve patient’s quality of life?
In addition, you must include an introductory slide on cancer, including the roles played by oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in the development of cancer and a conclusion slide with your viewpoint about cancer.
Each cancer overview should be no more than 5 slides.
The presentation should include a title slide with your name, course title, class number and term, and instructor information.
The presentation should also include a reference slide (or slides, if necessary, in addition to 15 slides). At least four professional references must be included. All internet sources must be original articles or government resources (NIH.gov, CDC.gov, medlineplus.gov) or from websites of medical Institutes (mayo.edu, mdanderson.org, dana-farber.org) or American Cancer Society (Cancer.org). Wikipedia or other non-peer reviewed resources are not acceptable.
Be sure to put your references in APA format.
Case 1 Study: Breast Cancer
Jennifer is a 28-year-old Caucasian woman who works as a legal assistant in a law firm. While showering one morning she notices a lump in her right breast.
Jennifer knows her mother had a harmful mutation in the BRCA1 gene, and her mother died of breast cancer. Jennifer has also had a history of early menstruation. She has never been pregnant, although would like to one day have children.
Concerned, Jennifer sees her primary physician, who sends her to have a mammogram. The mammogram shows that she does indeed have breast cancer. Her doctor discusses treatment options with her. She asks the physician how the various treatment options will affect her fertility.
Case Study 2: Colon Cancer
John is a 45-year-old, 6-foot-tall African American male with a BMI of 30 and he is in real estate business. John likes to have a drink after work to unwind, as well as go out with friends to a bar on weekends. John has approximately 20 drinks per week.
At the doctor’s office during a regular checkup, he reports feeling tired at work, a change of bowel habits over the past 2 months, and occasionally has blood in his stool. He has a family history of colon cancer; his father had colon cancer, but has managed it through treatment and is alive and doing well.
The physician sends him for a colonoscopy after a sigmoidoscopy. He is told after the procedure that a suspicious mass is detected and a biopsy and CT scan are needed to confirm the diagnosis. John is nervous and asks the doctor about the treatment options, prognosis, and if it will cause permanent infertility.
Case Study 3: Prostate Cancer
Andrew is 48 years old, works in a health insurance company, and is single. Through discussion with colleagues, he becomes aware of the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. He knows his father was diagnosed with prostate cancer at an early age.
Andrew decides to go for the PSA screening test. His higher than normal PSA blood test and digital rectum exam (DRE) test suggest he might have prostate cancer. A biopsy is done at his doctor’s office, and samples are sent to a lab.
The pathologist confirms the presence of cancer cells in the samples and provided a Gleason score which is quite high. Andrew asks the doctor whether he should have his sperm in “bank” in case a surgery is needed. Also, he has concerns on how the surgery will affect his regular life.
