Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements A 40-year-old woman noticed a lump in her left breast during a self-exam. She had not noticed this before, and it remained for a few days. She went to her physician for an examination. The doctor prescribed several tests such as an ultrasound and needle biopsy. She is diagnosed with a malignant tumor (2 cm) of the left breast. Her doctor recommends surgery to remove the tumor and may recommend a regimen of chemotherapy. How would you determine the stage of tumor? Why would the doctor select the particular diagnostic tests? Why might the doctor recommend chemotherapy? Which self-examination techniques might have aided an earlier detection of the tumor?
