A patient came to the clinic with back pain secondary to ‘silent malignancy.’ The patient complained of silent masses of the bowel and slow glowing masses of breast. A comprehensive examination was performed on the patient to identify all the hidden masses. The nurses diagnosed the bladder and the symptoms were recorded. Also, therapy and the pathological findings were recorded and after the analysis, it was identified that the patient had cancer. The nurses recommended more screening for identification of more possible problems.

The nurse was keen to identify any impairment in common senses such as speech, vision and hearing. The patient was assessed for any functional disability. Close relatives were also assessed to find out any changes of behavior of the patient in his home environment. The assessment was however not easy because the medical ward was noisy, and there were obstructions making it was hard for the medical expert to obtain the information from the patient. The nurse examined the patient on the reasons he opted to remain at home until the masses were fully develop. It was identified that the patient thought it was normal and the small breast masses was not painful.

Due to these challenges, the medical practitioners adopted specific strategies so right information regarding the patient’s situation could be obtained. First of all, the nurse assured the patient of his privacy. He was also made comfortable within the new hospital environment. In instances where the patient was unable to respond, the medical expert sought more information from the close relatives.
