It is not unusual for candidates to encounter hard to digest topics in subjects like biochemistry, pharmacology, statistics etc when you prepare for your Medical PG Exams. Many areas that needs to be covered for your upcoming AIIMS PG exams can test your ability to retain. The most solid way to learn such topics is by informal teaching.
The most effective way to really understand something difficult is to try to teach it to someone else.
Informal teaching is a relaxed way of learning by helping others. This could be done with friends, on G2M chat park and in AIPGMEE study groups. You could also explain things to anyone who is willing to listen including a non-medic spouse. Teaching others removes the illusion of learning or what is known as self-deceit where people convince themselves that they understood the topic.Answering questions and doubts on WhatsApp chat park and during discussions is an effective method of learning. There is no reason for one to shy away!

Warthin's tumour is:
An adenolymphoma of parotid gland
A pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid
A carcinoma of the parotid
A carcinoma of submandibular salivary gland
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. A, An adenolymphoma of parotid gland
Warthin tumor also known as papillary cystadenoma lymphomatosum and is found almost exclusively in the parotid gland. It represents approximately 5% of all salivary gland tumors and approximately 12% of benign tumors of the parotid gland. This tumor is more commonly seen in males in the fifth to seventh decades of life and there is an associated risk with smokers.
It is characterized histologically by papillary structures composed of double layers of granular eosinophilic cells or oncocytes, cystic changes, and mature lymphocytic infiltration.
ALL of the following statements regarding pleomorphic adenoma are TRUE, EXCEPT:
It is the most common neoplasm of salivary gland
It does not undergo malignant transformation
Surgical excision is the treatment of choice
Radiation can be used to control recurrent pleomorphic adenomas
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. B. It does not undergo malignant transformation
A rare complication of pleomorphic adenoma is its potential for malignant transformation into a tumor known as carcinoma expleomorphic adenoma, or alternately, “benign” metastasizing mixed tumors.
Pleomorphic adenomas, or benign mixed tumors, are the most common neoplasms of the salivary glands.
Complete surgical excision of the tumor with uninvolved margins is the recommended treatment.
Although radiation is not indicated in the treatment of benign salivary tumors, it has been used occasionally to control recurrent pleomorphic adenomas.
The MOST common malignant neoplasm of the salivary gland is:
Acinic cell carcinoma
Adenoid cystic carcinoma
CHOOSE ANSWER & CLICK HERE
Ans. C. Mucoepidermoid carcinoma
The most common malignant epithelial neoplasm of the salivary glands is mucoepidermoid carcinoma. The low-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma is composed of largely mucin-secreting cells, whereas in high-grade tumors, the epidermoid cells predominate.
Adenoid cystic carcinoma, which has a propensity for neural invasion, is the second most common malignancy in adults.
The most common malignancies in the pediatric population are mucoepidermoid carcinoma and acinic cell carcinoma.
