A physician who studies body fluids and tissues is pathologist. He helps your regular doctor to make a diagnosis about your health or any medical conditions you have, and uses laboratory tests to examine the health of patients with chronic symptoms.
Pathologists care for patients every day by giving their doctors with the information needed to ensure suitable patient care. They are important resources for other physicians 24 hours a day.
What they do
- A pathologist will also look at a tissue biopsy to check whether it is benign or you have cancer, and shares that information with your regular doctor.
- They may also suggest steps you can take to avoid illness and maintain good health. For example, when your blood is drawn as part of your yearly physical checkup, a pathologist may direct testing or perform tests to help evaluate your health.
- Some pathologists specialize in genetic testing, which can, for example, determine the most suitable treatment for particular types of cancer.
- Pathologists also carry out autopsies, which not only determine the person’s cause of death, but may also find out more information about the genetic succession of a disease. This examination can help family members take precautionary action for their own health and can aid researchers in developing future treatments.
