Anatomy Pathology Examination Results?
Hello, good evening. Sorry I want to ask. I have done an anatomic pathology examination. And the conclusion is that FAM Complex is accompanied by sclerosing adenosis and adenomyoepitelioma. The advice of his PA doctor is an immunohistochemical examination to rule out malignancy. What do you mean? Thank you for your answer.
FAM or fibroadenoma mammary is a form of breast tumor. Based on your PA results, the tumor consists of excessive growth of epithelial and myoepithelial cells. Both types of cells are cells that make up breast tissue and cells that line the breast glandular walls. Both experienced overgrowth so as to form tumors that are widespread and insulated.
Scelerosing adenosis is generally benign, but adenomyoepythelioma has the possibility of being malignant. Therefore, the PA doctor recommends that your tissue sample be examined histochemically to determine the nature of the tumor.
With histochemical examination, certain types of proteins can be identified, so that if there is a protein that characterizes the malignancy of a tumor, the protein can be identified. At this time, your tumor cannot be confirmed as malignant before further tests.
Thus the information I can give, may be useful. Regards.
