The female reproductive system is complex and subject to a wide variety of diseases, infections, and conditions.
Whether your doctor has ordered a needle biopsy of the breast, the endometrium (the lining of the uterus), or a biopsy of another part of the reproductive system, the sample will arrive in our pathology laboratory.
Specialized pathologists will examine your sample under the microscope and conduct sensitive tests to diagnose the presence, type, and stage of disease. These findings will help your doctor begin planning your treatment.
