Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    You only need one mutation to cause cancer. 
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 2. 
    Normal genes that slow down cell division, repair DNA mistakes, trigger cell suicide. When one of the genes are mutated, cells grow rapidly which can lead to cancer. 
  • 3. 
    A mutation or overexpression of certain normal genes called proto-oncogenes. 
  • 4. 
    Oncogenes can contribute to the growth of a tumour by:
    • A. 

      Causing unregulated cell division (due to absence of normal growth signals).

    • B. 

      Suppressing cell division (due to absence of normal growth signals).

    • C. 

      Triggering excessive cell suicide

  • 5. 
    Benign tumours are cancerous. They are true tumours that can change shape, destroy tissue, and have the potential to metastasise. 
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    Benign tumours are different to malignant tumours because:
    • A. 

      They are not aggressive, do not attack, and do not spread.

    • B. 

      They are aggressive and can spread.

  • 7. 
    When cancers spread to other tissues. It is life-threatening and difficult to treat. 
  • 8. 
    The origin of leukaemia is:
    • A. 

      Bone marrow

    • B. 

      Epithelial cells

    • C. 

      Myosarcoma

    • D. 

      Sarcoma

  • 9. 
    What defects are common to all cancer cells (tick all that apply)
    • A. 

      Uncontrollable cell growth

    • B. 

      Multiple mutations

    • C. 

      Evade cell death

    • D. 

      Process nutrients

    • E. 

      Avoid detection

    • F. 

      Invade tissue

    • G. 

      Bladder

  • 10. 
    What are the differences between normal cells and cancer cells?
    • A. 

      Normal cells grow and divide- cancer cells ignore communication cells from neighbouring cells and keep growing, they don't die.

    • B. 

      Normal cells are immortal- cancer cells ignore communication cells from neighbouring cells and die rapidly

    • C. 

      Normal cells metastasise- cancer cells ignore communication cells from neighbouring cells and commit excessive cell suicide
