A pathologist should be always prepared to report an urgent frozen section biopsy. In certain cases the surgeon may want the opinion of the pathologist during operation, when the patient is under anaesthesia. Usually he will inform in advance.

Indeed, it can be stressful as the pathologist is under pressure to report the slide rapidly and the tissue may be inadequate or there may be artifacts. But that is part of our life.

If you are the only pathologist in the lab, you should be prepared to process the tissue and give your opinion as soon as possible.

Usually the surgeon wants to know if there is any tumour, whether the tumour is benign or malignant and in case of malignant tumour, whether the surgical margins are clear.

If you have made special plans for personal enjoyment, be prepared to make the sacrifice with a smile.

Remember Pathology stands for:

P =  Productive

A=   Accomplished      

T=   Tenacious             

H =  Honest

O =  Optimistic

L =  Learned

O =  Organized

G =  Gracious

Y=   Youthful
