Understanding Your Biopsy Results

The Association of Directors of Anatomical and Surgical Pathology (ADASP) has developed a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) fact sheets to help patients understand their biopsy pathology report for cancers and pre-cancers of the breast, prostate, colon, esophagus, and lung.

Being able to carefully review the report at home allows patients and their families to better digest the information and more meaningfully discuss the findings with their physicians.
