Answer

Perform age-appropriate evaluation for malignancy. Testing for associated malignancy is based on age and sex and can be performed using imaging techniques such as chest radiography, computed tomography (CT) scanning, mammography, pelvic ultrasonography, upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging.
