Investigations To Find Out Cancer?
, I want to ask, what kind of cytological examination using aspiration of tumor tissue is it about removing tumor cells like that ???
As you know, so that doctors can handle a disease properly and correctly, doctors need to know the diagnosis first. The main diagnosis is obtained through interviews with patients and their families about the symptoms, signs and course of the disease, and is obtained through a physical examination. In addition, doctors often need supporting investigations that are of their nature to assist in the diagnosis. Investigations must be adjusted to the results of the interview and physical examination.
There are many types of investigations, for example examination of blood or tissue sample analysis in the lab and radiological examination. Tissue cytology examination is one form of many types of investigations.
When a doctor suspects a tumor, the doctor must determine whether the tumor is benign or malignant. In addition, the doctor must determine the type of tumor making cells. If it turns out the tumor is malignant (also called cancer), then the doctor also needs to determine the stage. Cytology is a supporting examination by taking a small sample of tumor tissue, then by microscopic method, assessed the type of tumor constituent cells. Therefore, cytology is a diagnostic, not a therapeutic measure. Tumor tissue can be partially taken for samples or if the tumor is small, it can be taken completely.
That is my explanation. May be useful.
