Breast pathology

Where rare is common.

Our breast pathology consultative service receives thousands of cases each year, spanning the spectrum of benign breast disease and diagnostically-challenging atypical lesions through to conventional carcinomas and rare variants. We are fortunate to have expansive molecular and immunohistochemistry test menus to aid with diagnosis of rare breast tumors, and have expertise in breast biomarker and companion diagnostic testing.
