Key Role of Pathology in Cancer

Pathologists are among the most important members of a patient’s cancer care team. They work to diagnose and determine the stage of cancer, setting the course for what comes next in the treatment journey. Diagnosis and staging are just the beginning of a cancer pathologist’s work. He or she also studies the tumor’s molecular structure to determine whether it is likely to be sensitive to certain chemotherapy drugs, hormone treatments or other cancer therapies. Dr. Garcia says antibodies have become the tool of choice for this task, because they have the ability to find and latch on to key proteins. A marker on the antibody’s other end offers clues as to whether a specific therapy may help fight the cancer. Pathologists may also look to genomic tests to assess whether a targeted therapy, either one that is on the market or one being tested in clinical trials, may offer another option. Cancer pathology’s key role in diagnosing and treating a complex disease, it’s important to stay up to date on new technologies and breakthroughs that continue to shape the ever-evolving landscape of cancer care. Making good use of that expertise is not limited to determining a diagnosis or recommending treatment options.
