Understand a Pathology Report
I am writing today to bring your attention to an excellent resource from BreastCancer.org. This is a booklet with clear information and understandable details about reading your pathology report. As you know, all treatment decisions are based on this information, and many women have less than full comprehension of all the language and implications.
Especially helpful, I think, in this booklet are the list of questions to ask your doctor about the report and a complete glossary to help you understand the terms.
Here is a link to download the whole thing. No matter where you are in the breast cancer experience, I strongly recommend that you read and understand your path report.
