Swollen Leg


It is 4am and the ED intern has rung. Bleary eyed, I answer the phone and am told "I have a 76 year man on hormone therapy for prostate cancer who has presented complaining of a swollen right leg."


  1. Continue the conversation with the oncologist telling what he is going to want to know about what you have done, what you have concluded and what you have excluded.
  2. You can order two tests only. Which ones? (not allowed CT, MRI or PET, they are too expensive for you!).
