It is important to understand the extent of cancer during the diagnosis for effective
determination of the future care plan and consequently the outcomes of the treatment. Diagnosis
determines whether the symptoms or the test results of cancer screening are as a result of cancer
or due to some other reasons. Staging is a vital part of a good diagnosis which involves
determining the extent of cancer in the body and its location. Cancer is of different types and has
different complications and hence different side effects of treatment. The methods to lessen
psychological and physical pain are also different depending on the complication of cancer.
Diagnosis of Cancer
In the diagnosis of cancer, the doctor looks at the sample of the affected tissue in order to
determine whether symptoms in an individual are cancerous or not. When the results of the
screening test show any possible existence of cancer, a biopsy is required which involves
removing a tiny piece of tissue surgically to determine whether the present tumor is cancerous or
not. The removal of tissue for biopsy may be carried out in three ways which include needle
biopsy, endoscopy, or surgical biopsy (Bollinger, 2016). Endoscopy involves the use of a lighted
tube to view the areas of the body for in assessing the possibilities of cancer. A needle biopsy is
whereby the sample tissue is taken through the insertion of a needle in the suspected area. In a
surgical biopsy, the entire or a portion of the cancerous tissue is removed either immediately or
later in another operation. After the doctor removing the tumor and identifying the presence of
cancer, the aggressiveness of cancer is determined to assess the growth of cancer. Therefore, it is
through the diagnosis that the tumor is determined whether is cancerous or not and also the type
and behavior of the tumor.
