Gastric Cancer Trivia Quiz - Quiz

Cancer is a word that we all have heard about. There are many types of cancers. This gastric cancer trivia quiz focuses on one type of it: gastric cancer itself. Gastric cancer is known as a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells gather in the lining of the stomach. Age, diet, and stomach disease are some factors that can affect the risk of developing gastric cancer. Here are some trivia questions that will help you learn more about this disease.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A client hospitalized who has chronic dyspepsia is tested for gastric cancer. What is related to an increased incidence of gastric cancer? 

    • A.

      Dairy products

    • B.

      Carbonated beverages

    • C.

      Both A & B

    • D.

      Luncheon meats

    Correct Answer
    D. Luncheon meats
    Explanation
    Luncheon meats are related to an increased incidence of gastric cancer. This is because processed meats, such as luncheon meats, contain nitrates and nitrites, which are preservatives that can be converted into nitrosamines in the stomach. Nitrosamines are known carcinogens and have been linked to an increased risk of gastric cancer. Therefore, consuming luncheon meats regularly can contribute to the development of gastric cancer in individuals with chronic dyspepsia.

  • 2. 

    Which statement regarding gastric cancer is true?

    • A.

      The incidence of cancer of the stomach keeps decreasing in the United States.

    • B.

      Most gastric cancer deaths happen in people younger who are than 40 years.

    • C.

      Males have a lower incidence of gastric cancers than females.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. The incidence of cancer of the stomach keeps decreasing in the United States.
  • 3. 

    The laboratory of a male patient who has a Peptic ulcer revealed an elevated titer of Helicobacter pylori. Which statement shows an understanding of this data?

    • A.

      Treatment will have Ranitidine and Antibiotics.

    • B.

      No treatment is required at this time.

    • C.

      This result shows gastric cancer is caused by the organism.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Treatment will have Ranitidine and Antibiotics.
    Explanation
    The presence of an elevated titer of Helicobacter pylori in the laboratory results indicates that the patient has an infection caused by this bacterium. Helicobacter pylori is a common cause of peptic ulcers, and treatment typically involves a combination of ranitidine (a medication that reduces stomach acid production) and antibiotics to eradicate the infection. Therefore, the statement "Treatment will have Ranitidine and Antibiotics" demonstrates an understanding of the data.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What is helicobacter pylori known to be associated with?

    • A.

      Prostate cancer

    • B.

      Lung cancer

    • C.

      Brain cancer

    • D.

      Gastric cancer

    Correct Answer
    D. Gastric cancer
    Explanation
    Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium that is known to be associated with gastric cancer. It is a common cause of chronic gastritis and peptic ulcers, and long-term infection with this bacterium can lead to the development of gastric cancer. Several studies have shown a strong link between H. pylori infection and the development of gastric cancer, making it an important risk factor for this type of cancer.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Stomach cancer's risk factors are

    • A.

      Advanced age

    • B.

      Cigarettes

    • C.

      Pickled or salty foods' excess intake

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above". This means that all of the mentioned risk factors - advanced age, cigarettes, and excessive intake of pickled or salty foods - contribute to the risk of developing stomach cancer. Advanced age is a risk factor because as people get older, their risk of developing cancer increases. Cigarettes contain harmful chemicals that can damage the stomach lining and increase the risk of cancer. Excessive intake of pickled or salty foods can lead to chronic inflammation and damage to the stomach, which can also increase the risk of cancer.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Stomach cancer's early symptoms are

    • A.

      Indigestion

    • B.

      Loss of appetite

    • C.

      Tiredness

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because stomach cancer can cause indigestion, loss of appetite, and tiredness in its early stages. Indigestion is a common symptom of stomach cancer, as the tumor can interfere with the normal functioning of the digestive system. Loss of appetite is also a common early symptom, as the cancer can affect the person's ability to eat and digest food properly. Tiredness or fatigue can be caused by the cancer itself or as a result of other symptoms such as anemia or weight loss. Therefore, all of these symptoms can be indicative of stomach cancer in its early stages.

  • 7. 

    Avoiding risk factors and going with protective factors can help prevent stomach cancer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Avoiding risk factors and adopting protective factors can indeed help in preventing stomach cancer. Risk factors for stomach cancer include smoking, a diet high in salted or smoked foods, and infection with the bacteria Helicobacter pylori. On the other hand, protective factors include maintaining a healthy diet with fruits and vegetables, avoiding excessive alcohol consumption, and practicing good hygiene. By following these preventive measures, individuals can reduce their risk of developing stomach cancer.

  • 8. 

    Stomach cancer may happen to be asymptomatic for a long time before diagnosis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Stomach cancer can often be asymptomatic, meaning that there are no noticeable symptoms, for a significant period before it is diagnosed. This can make it difficult to detect and treat the cancer at an early stage. Regular screenings and medical check-ups are important for early detection and prevention of stomach cancer.

    • A.

      Presence of blood in stools and vomiting

    • B.

    • C.

      Unexplained stomach pain

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all of the listed symptoms, including the presence of blood in stools and vomiting, a bloated feeling after eating, and unexplained stomach pain, are associated with stomach cancer. These symptoms can indicate the presence of a tumor in the stomach and should be taken seriously.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The symptom that shows stomach drainage by the enlarging cancer is:

    • A.

      Fatigue

    • B.

      Severe nausea and vomiting

    • C.

      Weight gain

    • D.

      Abdominal pain

    Correct Answer
    B. Severe nausea and vomiting
    Explanation
    Severe nausea and vomiting can be a symptom of stomach drainage caused by an enlarging cancer. When the cancer grows and obstructs the stomach or the opening between the stomach and intestines, it can lead to a buildup of stomach contents. This can cause severe nausea and vomiting as the body tries to get rid of the excess fluid and food. Therefore, severe nausea and vomiting is a clear indication of stomach drainage by an enlarging cancer.
