needed and proper care should be given. Assessing the lifestyle is important as a nurse’s job for someone with cancer because it allows them to see if you have a support system. Prognosis When the cancer is diagnosed, if it is still located only in the area where it started, it is called "local," and the 5-year survival rate is 95%. Approximately 69% of white women are diagnosed at this stage, compared with 54% of black women. If the cancer has spread regionally, the 5-year survival rate is about 69%. If it is diagnosed after the cancer has spread into other areas of the body, the survival rate is 17%. Prognosis long term depends on the stage of cancer and the treatment that is taken. It also depends on your health and age at which the cancer is diagnosed. The 5-year survival rate tells you what percentage of women live at least 5 years after the cancer is found.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
