His previous axillary lymph node biopsy result was positive for Reed-Sternberg cells. The surgeon charted the results of the staging procedure as “stage I.” ***What is the purpose of the staging procedure for A.S.? (select all that apply) Staging is used to determine the degree of anaplasia which determines the degree of malignancy. Staging is used to determine if the cancer is benign or malignant. Staging is used to determine the most appropriate type of treatment. Staging system establishes a correlation between anatomic extent of disease and prognosis. ***What does “stage I” signify for A.S.? (select all that apply) Stage I: Involvement of more than 50% of the lymph node regions, and is associated with a low cure rate. Stage I: Involvement of more than 3 lymph node regions, and is associated with a high cure rate. Stage I: Involvement of a single lymph node region, and is associated with a high cure rate. Stage I: Involvement of more than 80% of the lymph node regions is associated with a low cure rate. ***What side effects might A.S. expect from the cancer therapy? (select all that apply) Both chemotherapy and radiation therapy increase risk of developing later malignancies. There is an increased risk of bleeding with thrombocytopenia, and of infection with leucopenia. Anemia produces a decrease in oxygen carrying capacity, reducing activity tolerance. Radiation, like chemotherapy, may result in bone marrow suppression leading to anemia, thrombocytopenia, and leukopenia. • Show less
