The basics: Patient identifying data, site from which the tissue was taken, a description of what was received by the pathologist and if so what type of preservative / fixative if any. On resected specimens, the description showcases the pathologist's sharp eyes. Almost always there will be a microscopic description of some portion stained in some way, unless it's orthopedic hardware or something similar.

Still waiting for pathology results from polypectomy and endometrial biopsy. I had the op on the 11th of march. Is this normal? I called twice myself

Should have answer.: You should have gotten a result by this time. Sometimes the pathologists need to work on it longer if they see something, but they would be in touch with your other doctor (s), at least the doctor who robed your polyp. So it would be wise to speak to that doctor to try to get an answer as to what's going on. Best of luck.

Can you explain what intrathoracic pathology means?

An explanation: In the broadest sense of the word, "pathology" means something that is abnormal and, in medicine, is usually inferred to be something abnormal that is harming your well-being in any way. Intrathoracic means "within the thoracic cavity." Generally speaking this is within your chest (above the diaphragm and below the neck). In short. Combine these two and you have intrathoracic pathology.

Please help! What is the difference betewen shock and coma in view of pathology?
