Re: Very Interesting Implications for Pathology Results

That is certainly the case with liver biopsies, such as my husband had to have because he had Hep C. The biopsy only takes a snapshot of the organ because it is a small piece. I am sure it is the same with breast specimens. They do not make slides of the entire specimen, say 1 cm. apart, due to expense. I think we should probably all just assume that our tumors are heterogeneous, given that.
