Some diseases and cancers affect children differently from adults. Some diseases and tumors, in fact, affect only children.
Your child's pediatrician may order a tissue sample or a blood sample if he or she suspects that a certain disease or condition may be present.
Our pediatric pathologists are highly skilled and experienced in testing and examining samples for childhood diseases and diseases that can affect people of any age.
They share their test results and interpretations with your child's doctors so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.
If you're waiting for test results or have a question for your doctor, sign in to UPMC HealthTrak. HealthTrak is a secure, interactive tool that lets you manage your health online.
