Reflection #1 Research Ethics Nurse Rivers and the Tuskegee Syphilis StudyReflection Prompt Reflect on how your attitudes beliefs and values influence your thoughts and feelings about the research ethics associated with the role Nurse Rivers played in the Tuskegee Syphilis study.

Reflection #1: Research Ethics, Nurse Rivers, and the Tuskegee Syphilis StudyReflection Prompt: Reflect on how your attitudes, beliefs, and values influence your thoughts and feelings about the research ethics associated with the role Nurse Rivers played in the Tuskegee Syphilis study.

Initial Post #1: Putting yourself in Nurse Rivers’ shoes in that time (1932) and place (Macon County, Alabama), what factors might convince you to continue with the study once you became aware that a treatment was available but the men would never receive this treatment? What role, if any, do you think being African-American played in Nurse Rivers’ decision to continue with the study? In the video, we learned that Nurse Rivers received numerous government, state, and local awards for her outstanding contributions to the nursing profession. Do you believe that continuing her role in the study and earning these awards are mutually exclusive? In other words, do you believe it is possible to violatethe trust of the men in the study and still earnthe awards?

Cancer Case Studies

A 21-year-old male noted pain in his right testicle while studying hard for his midterm college examinations. On self-examination, he noted a “grape sized” mass in the right testicle. This finding was corroborated by his healthcare provider. This young man had a history of delayed descent of his right testicle until the age of 1 year old.


Routine laboratory studies

Ultrasound the testicle

HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) CT scan of the abdomen

CT scan of the chest

Diagnostic Analysis


Within normal limits (WNL)

Solid mass, right testicle associated with calcifications 550mIU/mL (normal: <5)

Enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes

Multiple pulmonary nodules

At semester break, this young man underwent right orchiectomy. Pathology was compatible with embryonal cell carcinoma. CT directed biopsy of the most prominent pulmonary nodule indicated embryonal cell carcinoma, compatible with metastatic testicular carcinoma. During a leave of absence from college, and after banking his sperm, this young man underwent aggressive chemotherapy. Repeat testing 12 weeks after chemotherapy showed complete resolution of the pulmonary nodules and enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes.

Critical Thinking Questions

1. What impact did an undescended testicle have on this young man’s risk for developing testicular cancer?

2. What might be the side effects of cytotoxic chemotherapy?

3. What was the purpose of preserving his sperm before chemotherapy?

4. Is this young man’s age typical for the development of testicular carcinoma?
