Based on your performance on the PHYSICAL EXAM collection, describe one key finding that you included in your list and describe a specific physical exam that you can perform at the point-of-care to further evaluate the finding. Use specific references from your text. One key finding that I did perform was the breast exam. This was a focused assessment directly related to the CC. Upon assessment of the breast, location, size and number of lumps can be documented. Discussion Question 4 Based on your performance and the expert feedback in your ASSESSMENT identification of problem categories, choose one missed/incorrect category and use specific references from your text to explain the importance of this category in arriving at correct differential diagnoses for this client. I jumped to the conclusion of breast cancer without providing other differential diagnoses that could be possible for this patient. According to Bickley & Szilagyi (2017), a differential diagnosis can start with the most likely explanation of the issue, but will also include other possible or relevant diagnoses which could lead to serious consequences if undiagnosed and untreated.
