Pathologists are the physicians who analyze cells and tissues under a microscope to determine whether they are cancerous, pre-cancerous, or benign (non-cancerous). These specimens are taken during a breast biopsy, lumpectomy, mastectomy or lymph node removal. Our pathologists help your physician determine whether you have a condition that needs treatment. We work hard to get you a prompt, reliable answer so that you don't have to worry any longer than necessary.
