    7 of the cases were repeats. They give different response to candidates, so be aware. The amenorrhea case was actually PV bleeding post 8 weeks of amenohrea, & her cycles were quite irrigular( every 4-8 weeks), & the examiner gave different responses regarding beta HCG( -,+, & pending)
    The Haematuria case was clearly a BPH from history & physical examination, & not a cancer

    hi there
    The new ones were the lady with 12 months history of pancreatic cancer, who just finished her chemotherapy cycles, & now she refuses any further treatment, & asks you(oncology resident) to give her ENOUGH PAIN KILLERS TO KILL HERSELF, & it's all because of the very bad pain that she's having. It's a case of Euthanasia i guess, which is controversial every where, but illegal in Australia.
    The other new one probably is a man with Histopathology consistent with Barettes Oesophagus with Hiatus hernia, that you need to go through the managementwith him.although it's not a cancer, u need to say Surgery correction, & rpt Endoscopy & biopsy

    Pancreatic cancer

    Hi there, I've got the feedback, i passed 15 stations, & the pancreatic cancer station was one of them.
    It's a 60s lady with 12 months ca pancreas who wanted to kill herself when 1st diagnosed, but spoke with some counseller at that time who convinced her to give it a go with the chemo. Now she wants to go home, 7 wants u ( Oncology doctor) to give her enough pain killers to kill herself.

    I greeted the pt, & directly acknowledged her pain problems & her chemotherapy bad experience, & showed a lot of empathy. She asked me for pain killers to go home & kill herself, because the pain is so bad & she doesn't want to put any burden on her family any more.
    I started by explaining to her that it's agianst law, & against my oath & ethics to do such a thing, In stead, i asked her if she knows anything about palliative care, & she said yes, it's kind of multidisplinary team thing. I said it's exactly right, it's role is to help cancer, & other terminal pt to have a comfortable & a pain free sort of life style for the rest of her life, using combination of pain relief stuff. She asked me if that could be done at home, I said sure it can, we just need to get u admitted to the Pall. care unit for a week or so to get the CADD pump setting accurate, titrated against ur pain, then we will send u home on it, with follow up at home by community & palliative care nurses. I passed that station.
    Any further questions are welcomed.
    Good luck for all
