Pathology is a medical specialty that focuses on determining the cause and nature of diseases.
Throughout childhood, adulthood and old age, pathology continues to help prevent, diagnose and treat infections, allergies, chronic diseases, cancer and countless other medical conditions. Pathology laboratories examine and test body tissues (e.g. biopsies, pap smears) and fluids (e.g. blood, urine) which help doctors diagnose and treat patients correctly.
