Immunotherapy As a medical assistant, I can use this knowledge to help educatethe patient why he/she has questions in regards to certain types of cancer. Forexample, if the patient asks me why she is getting screened for bladder cancerwhen she only came in because she had bloody urine, I can advise the patientthat one of the signs of bladder cancer consist of bloody urine. I can use thisinformation to help the patient understand why they are being screed for thetype of cancer he/she is being screened for.
