  • questions about pathology

    I am now waiting the results of the pathologies after removing my testicle.

    I read this good article about INFLAMMATORY TUMOR-LIKE LESIONS on the following link:

    Can somebody help me answering these questions:

    -Is it possible for a pathologist to give wrong opinion about my situation?
    Is it advisable to approach 2nd opinion from another pathologist?

    -Will the pathologisg apply all available technolgies in examination like histology?

    - How difficult is to send part of my removed testicle to a pathologist to give 2nd opinion?

    Sometimes pathologists get the composition of a tumor wrong but not very often. Unless you have something odd or your cancer has spread beyond stage I, I wouldn't worry.
