Wenatchee Valley College HLTH 123Medical Terminology Review-Practice Exam 2 (Ch 4-7) Select the one best answer for the following multiple choice questions. Read the following diagnostic report and then answer the questions that follow. This 50-year-old white male has lost approximately forty pounds since his last examination. The patient denies dysphagia, postprandial distress, diarrhea, nausea, emesis, hematemesis, or constipation. He has had a history of regional enteritis and colonic bleeding. The regional enteritis resulted in an ileostomy with appendectomy about six months ago. On 1/30/99 a sigmoidoscopy using a 10 cm scope showed no evidence of bleeding at the anorectal area. A 25 cm scope was then inserted to a level of 13 cm. At this point, angulation prevented further passage of the scope, no abnormalities had been encountered, but there was dark blood noted at that level. My impression is that the rectal bleeding could be due to a polyp, bleeding diverticulum or rectal carcinoma. 1.
