Histopathology And Immunohistochemistry

This deals with tissue diagnosis. We receive, process, interpret and report all tissue biopsies from superficial and deep organs. These biopsies are done as part of initial diagnostic work up, for determining therapy, prognostication and for follow up of medical conditions for which patients are receiving treatment. Under certain circumstances, these biopsies are used to determine if a cancer has recurred. The commonest biopsies received are those from the breast, prostate stomach and intestine. Others are incisional biopsies, excision biopsies, curettages and punch biopsies. These are usually for diagnostic purposes and involve the submission of a part of diseased organs. We have capability to do immunohistochemistry and other molecular pathology investigations with support from an external laboratory
