Pathology is a branch of medical science that involves the study and diagnosis of disease through the examination of surgically removed organs, biopsy specimens, bodily fluids, and others.  Aspects of a bodily specimen that may be considered include its gross anatomical features, histological arrangements and immunohistochemical markers.  Pathology also includes the related scientific study of disease processes whereby the causes, mechanisms and extent of disease are examined.  Pathologists specialize in a wide range of diseases including cancer and the vast majority of cancer diagnoses are made by pathologists. The morphological pattern of tissue samples are observed under a microscope to help determine if a sample is benign or malignant.  The most challenge cases are those between benign and malignant.  Pathologists employ tumor genetic studies in the assessment of various diseases and provided options of treatment as well.
