Transcript of Diagnosing Cancer
can tell if you have a gene mutation which can increase
your risk of getting a cancer. If the test was positive then the doctor would watch your health careful and continue those test. If the test was negative then most likely you will have cancer too and the doctor will try to prevent it. Genetic Test An ultrasound uses sound waves to
create a picture of the internal organs A CT or CAT scan takes three-dimensional picture of the inside of the body using an x-ray machine. Then they use a computer to combine the images into a detailed, cross-sectional view that will show anything that is not normal or tumors. Sometimes they will inject the patient with special dye into their vein to get better detail picture. Cat or CT Scan
Computed Tomography Scan A bone scan uses a radioactive tracer to look inside of the bones. The radioactive tracer is substance that is injected into a patient’s vein.This substance is attracted to the bone. It gathers together by the bone and is detected by a special camera. If your bone looks gray to the camera its healthy but if it appears dark then it is cancer. Bone Scan Lung Cancer Blood Cancer
Leukemia Stomach Cancer An MRI is a scan using a large magnetic. It uses magnetic fields to make detailed images of the body. You may be injected with contrast medium in the vein to get a clearer picture of the inside. MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging An x-ray can create a detailed image of the inside of the body using
a small amount of radiation. It is useful to find and monitor some types of tumors. X-ray This types of biopsy is when the doctor will make an incision in the skin and will take some of the tissues so that they can be examined. They use this type if the needle biopsy to show that there could be cancer in that certain area. Sometimes they will use this method first to take tissues and diagnosis it. There are two types of surgical biopsy: Incisional and Excisional. Surgical Biopsy *Abdomen

It may be used for soft tissues in muscle or fat to see if it is cancerous or not. Incisional This surgical biopsy is when the whole lump is removed. This biopsy was used more when they didn't have the fine needle aspiration. They will still use this method if your lymph nodes or breast enlarger but if the lump is still small and hasn't spread then they will remove the whole lump. Excisional A bone marrow is when they look at the cells in the bone marrow and take tissue to be examined.This is a very good way to find the problem. The physician will put a long hollow needle into the bone and remove some of the cells in the bone. The most common spots for bone marrow is the pelvic bone (lower part of back by the hip). This test can determine if they have a blood disorder or blood cancer and can find out if cancer has spread to the bone marrow
