A pathology report is a medical document written by a pathologist, a doctor who specializes in interpreting laboratory tests and evaluating cells, tissues, and organs to diagnose disease. The report specifies a diagnosis based on the pathologist’s examination of a sample of tissue taken from the patient’s tumor. This tissue sample (specimen) is obtained through a biopsy.
The pathologist’s examination reveals whether the tumor tissue from the biopsy is benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous, meaning it can spread to other parts of the body). If it is cancerous, the pathologist may perform additional tests on the sample to learn more about the cancer. The doctor will receive these test results as they become available, so it may take a few days to a few weeks to receive the full report, depending on the studies the pathologist performs.
The pathology report provides specific information about the characteristics of the tumor, which helps the doctor determine the best cancer treatment options to recommend for patient. The report contains highly technical medical terms because it is a communication between two doctors—the pathologist and the oncologist (a doctor who specializes in treating people with cancer).
Parts of a pathology report
Different pathologists use different words to describe the same things. However, most pathology reports include the following elements:
content herePatient, doctor, and specimen identification. This section lists the patient's name, birth date, and other personal information; the pathologist’s and oncologist’s contact information; and details about the specimen, including the type of biopsy or surgery performed and the type of tissue obtained.
Gross (obvious) description. This section describes the tissue sample (or tumor, if it was removed) as seen with the naked eye, including the general color, weight, size, and consistency.
Microscopic description. This highly technical section, which serves as the basis for the diagnosis section, describes what the cancer cells look like when viewed under a microscope. The microscopic part of the report also specifies the type of cancer.
