Cancer Cytopathology

Cancer cytopathology is a branch of pathology which is related to the oncology department. The main aim is to provide information about the Cytopathologists. Basically, oncology is the branch of study which deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The tests performed are also known as smear tests which may be used to detect the information about the tumor. Hence it is also termed as a Cytological smear.

Cytopathology is the anatomical division where the morphological & abnormal changes of the cells occur from lesions to malignancy. In cytopathology, the malignant cells and pre-malignant cells are detected by the Cytological evaluation of samples or specimens obtained by techniques such as Fine needle aspirations (FNAs), cerebrospinal fluids, gastric and bile duct washings, pleural and peritoneal effusions.
