Understanding Your Breast Pathology Report

After breast cancer surgery, your surgeon and the hospital's pathology department will prepare a breast pathology report. This report summarizes the information collected about your breast cancer, and includes your doctor's observations and the analysis of the tissue that has been surgically removed. The report may be useful in educating you about the type of cancer you've had, and other types that may affect you. Certain information about the cancer in your breast may lead to other tests. You and your doctor may receive different parts of your pathology report at different times. When you and your doctor both have all the information, sit down and decide your course of treatment. Ask your doctor to explain anything about the pathology report that you don't understand. The report will help your doctor classify the type and stage of cancer. Keep a copy of the report for future reference.
