Why did I receive a pathology report?

You received a pathology report because a tissue sample from your body was sent to a pathologist for examination. The results of that examination are written in your report. 

Your pathology report includes information about the type of tissue sent for examination, the features seen when the tissue was examined under the microscope, and the results of any additional tests that were performed on your tissue in order to help reach a diagnosis.


Many pathology reports include important information that will hep guide your care. You should discuss your report with your doctor and ask questions if you are unclear about any of the information included in your report.
