Histopathology is the microscopic examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen that has been processed and put onto glass slides to look for evidence of disease. The sections are stained with one or more stains to help visualise different components of the tissue under a microscope.Pathologists divide tissue into "sections," which are very thin layers that are processed and cut by pathologists. They next dye the sample and examine it under a microscope. They can see and document the features of the tissue using a microscope.
A histopathology examination can detect a range of disorders, including ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, uterine fibroids, cancer, and even infections. Other than that the usage of frozen portions during surgery is determined by the type of cancer being removed as well as other considerations. This pathology is most typically utilised to assess tumour margins after surgery so that a surgeon may determine whether more tissue should be removed in order to completely eliminate the cancer.
Cancers of the Lymph Nodes and Blood
Biopsies of lymph nodes are commonly performed to check for specific types of blood cancers and solid tumour metastases (such as breast cancer and lung cancer). For many forms of blood malignancies, a bone marrow biopsy may be required for a definite diagnosis
