    Non melanoma skin cancer

    • A.

      Malignant

    • B.

      Noncancerous growth

    • C.

      Basal cell carcinoma

    Correct Answer
    C. Basal cell carcinoma
    Explanation
    Basal cell carcinoma is a type of non-melanoma skin cancer that arises from the basal cells in the skin. It is considered malignant because it has the potential to invade and destroy surrounding tissues. Unlike noncancerous growths, basal cell carcinoma can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. Therefore, the given answer correctly identifies basal cell carcinoma as a type of non-melanoma skin cancer that is malignant.

It can either directly damage the DNA in cells or interfere with normal cellular processes, leading to uncontrolled growth and division of cells. Carcinogens can be found in various forms such as chemicals, radiation, certain viruses, and even some types of medications. They can initiate the formation of cancer or enhance its progression by promoting the growth of existing cancer cells. Therefore, a carcinogen is the most appropriate option among the given choices to describe an agent or substance that incites cancer.

      Sarcoma

    Correct Answer
    C. Sarcoma
    Explanation
    A sarcoma is a type of cancerous tumor that originates in the connective tissue. Connective tissue includes bones, cartilage, fat, muscles, blood vessels, and other supportive tissues. Sarcomas can occur in any part of the body and are often aggressive and can spread to other parts of the body. Lymphatic refers to the lymphatic system, which is a network of vessels and organs that help fight infection and regulate fluid balance in the body. Malignancy is a general term for cancerous growth or tumor. Therefore, the correct answer for a cancerous tumor arising in connective tissue is sarcoma.

      Angiogram

    • D.

      Mammogram

    Correct Answer
    A. Sonogram
    Explanation
    A record produced by ultrasonography is called a sonogram. Ultrasonography is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body. The images produced by this technique are known as sonograms, which are used to visualize organs, tissues, and structures in the body. Sonograms are commonly used in obstetrics to monitor the development of a fetus during pregnancy, as well as in other medical fields for diagnostic purposes.

    • D.

      Radiology

    Correct Answer
    B. Radiographer
    Explanation
    A radiographer is a healthcare professional who is trained and skilled in making X-ray records, also known as radiographs. They use specialized equipment to capture images of the inside of the body to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. Radiographers work closely with radiologists, who interpret the images and make diagnoses.

    Echography.

    • A.

      Blurred sound

    • B.

      Ultrasound tool

    • C.

      Sound tool

    Correct Answer
    B. Ultrasound tool
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "ultrasound tool" because echography refers to the use of ultrasound waves to create images of internal body structures. It is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of organs, tissues, and blood flow. Therefore, an ultrasound tool is the correct term to describe the device used in echography. "Blurred sound" and "sound tool" are not accurate descriptions of echography.

    • C.

      X-ray breastfeeding

    Correct Answer
    A. X-ray of breast
    Explanation
    Mammography is the correct answer because it refers to the use of x-rays to examine the breast tissue. It is a common screening tool for detecting breast cancer and other abnormalities in the breast. The other options, x-ray mutation and x-ray breastfeeding, are not related to the specific use of x-rays in examining the breast.

    • B.

      X-ray mutation vision

    • C.

      X-ray precautions

    Correct Answer
    C. X-ray precautions
    Explanation
    The given answer "x-ray precautions" is correct because it lists various safety measures that should be taken during x-ray examinations. Film badges are used to monitor radiation exposure, lead barriers and lead-lined room protective clothing provide shielding against radiation, and gonad shields are used to protect reproductive organs from radiation. These precautions are essential to minimize the risk of radiation exposure and ensure the safety of both patients and healthcare professionals during x-ray procedures.

    Brachytherapy

    • A.

      X-ray blurred vision

    • B.

      Radioactive substance insert

    • C.

      Radioactive x- ray

    Correct Answer
    B. Radioactive substance insert
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "radioactive substance insert" because brachytherapy involves the insertion of a radioactive substance into the body to treat cancer. This radioactive material is placed in or near the tumor, delivering a high dose of radiation directly to the cancer cells while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues. The use of a radioactive substance insert is a common and effective method in brachytherapy for targeted cancer treatment.

    • A.

      Blurred vision

    • B.

      X-ray dangers(3)

    • C.

      X-ray ependymal (3)

    Correct Answer
    B. X-ray dangers(3)
    Explanation
    The given answer "x-ray dangers(3)" is the correct answer because it aligns with the information provided in the question. The question mentions "Damage to the gonads, depress the hematopoietic system and leukemia" which indicates the harmful effects of x-ray radiation on the body. X-rays have the potential to cause damage to the reproductive organs (gonads), suppress the production of blood cells (hematopoietic system), and increase the risk of developing leukemia. Therefore, the answer "x-ray dangers(3)" accurately reflects the hazards associated with x-ray radiation.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "world health organization" because it is the international agency responsible for public health. It is recognized as the leading authority on global health matters and is responsible for coordinating international health responses, setting health standards, and providing technical assistance to countries. The other options mentioned, such as the college of physician and surgeons, medical association, and mental health association, are not global health organizations and do not have the same level of authority and responsibility as the World Health Organization.

    Correct Answer
    C. Circle, cycle and mind
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "circle, cycle and mind". This is because the term "cyclothymic" is derived from the combining form "cyclo-", which refers to a circle or cycle, and the root "thym-", which pertains to the mind. Therefore, "circle, cycle and mind" accurately describes the root/combining form of "cyclothymic disorder".

    Correct Answer
    C. Mammography
    Explanation
    Mammography is the correct answer because it is the process of obtaining a picture of the breast. It is a specific type of imaging technique used to detect and diagnose breast cancer. Mammography uses low-dose X-rays to capture images of the breast tissue, allowing healthcare professionals to identify any abnormalities or changes that may indicate the presence of breast cancer. The other options, mastography, mammogram, and mastogram, are not commonly used terms in medical practice and do not accurately describe the process of obtaining a picture of the breast.
