ken f. Posted December 11, 2004 Share Posted December 11, 2004 hi, i finally got pathology report after 11/24/2004 surgery. it notes, inter alia: wedge biopsy specimens, right lower lobe and right upper lobe tumor type: adenocarcinoma Histologic grade: Grade II/III-right lower lobe; Grade II-III/III-right upper lobe tumor size: right upper 3.2 cm and right lower 1.1 cm. pleura invasion: right lower specimen evaluation impossible due to disrepted state of specimen (CT and pet scans showed tumor away from pleural walls). pleura surrounding right upper lobe free of neoplasm bronchial margin of resection: negative in both invasion of other structures: not identified peritumoral lung: both specimens show congestion; lymph nodes: 15 lymph notes negative 0/9 right lvel 4; 06 right level 7) non-neoplastic lung: unremarkable. my reaction is to think that this is not the best, but certainly not the worst, path report i might have been able to see. i am uncertain what the "Grade" level conotes. how is grade used in staging? i thot i'd ask all of you prior to meeting with onco doc next week. yours, ken Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
