Hello Indra91, Thank you for the question.
Anatomical pathology examination is a tissue examination of a sample of body tissue used to determine the type of tumor / cancer. Synaptophysin and cytokeratin are proteins found in tissues. These proteins can be found in certain cancer cells. The results of this protein examination can determine the type of cancer that occurs so that more appropriate treatment can be given to patients.
X-rays of bones taken on your sister were done to find out whether these cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body, one of which is bone. The x-ray results found bone loss (osteolysis) in the hip bones and femur which can be caused by the spread of cancer cells. It is recommended that your sister and family discuss the results of this examination with the specialist doctor who treats your sister. With this result, the doctor will determine further treatment according to your sister's condition. The treatment given will also be adjusted to the general health condition of the patient.
Hopefully this information is useful.
