Pathology Report-Male Breast Cancer

Whenever tissue is removed from the body to check for cancer, a report is written, called the pathology report. Each report has the results of lab tests that were done on your tissue. The information in these reports will help you and your doctor decide which treatments are best for you. Your pathology report answers the following questions:

 

What kind of breast cancer is it?

What is the stage of the breast cancer?

How different are the cancer cells from normal cells?

How big is the cancer?

Is there lymph node involvement?

What is the cancer’s hormone receptor status?

What is the cancer’s HER2 status?
