Onco Pathology

The department of Onco pathology have following facilities:

  • Histopathology and IHC
  • Bone Marrow Examinations
  • All types of Haematological Examination

In Sugical Oncology, treatment of malignant tumors involves the excision of tumor with 1 cm margin of normal tissue around the tumor- this is termed as clear margin. Failure to achieve this reduces the chance of local control ( for radiotherapy) and recurrence can be expected

To overcome this proble, frozen section analysis is undertaken from the mucosol and deep surfacees of the defect then intraoperatively; and if the tumor remains then further resection is undertaken at the time of primary resection.
