Understanding your pathology results

This booklet is about understanding your pathology results. A pathology report shows the results of any tests done on tissue removed from the body. It is one of the first pieces of information you'll receive about your breast cancer. This booklet should help you to understand the information and breast cancer terms used in your report, and to ask questions if you need your doctors to explain anything more clearly.  Last reviewed February 2018; next review 2020.
