Surgical pathology is the investigation of tissues expelled from living patients amid surgery to analyze an illness and decide a treatment arrangement. It is responsible for the histological diagnosis of biopsies and surgical resections of major organ systems Regularly, the surgical pathologist gives discussion administrations in a wide assortment of organ indications and subspecialties. The act of surgical pathology takes into consideration authoritative analysis of illness (or deficiency in that department) regardless where tissue is surgically expelled from a patient. This Pathology is generally performed in combination of gross (i.e., plainly visible) and histologic (i.e., infinitesimal) examination of the tissue, and may include assessments of sub-atomic properties of the tissue by immunohistochemistry.This division includes sections of breast pathology, cardiopulmonary pathology, Dermatopathology, gastrointestinal pathology, genitourinary pathology, head and neck pathology, hematopathology, hepatobiliary pathology, renal pathology, skeletal and soft tissue pathology.

Tumor is a gathering of infections including unusual cell development with the possibility to spread to different parts of the body .It can be either benign or malignant cancer that possesses no physiological function and arises from uncontrolled usually rapid cellular proliferation. Not all tumors are harmful; kindhearted tumors don't spread to different parts of the body. Conceivable signs and indications incorporate a protuberance, strange dying, delayed hack, unexplained weight reduction and an adjustment in defecations. While these side effects may demonstrate tumor and it may have different causes, there are more than 100 cancers that affect humans. The pathology related to tumors is known as cancer pathology. It is the task of the surgical pathologist to provide an accurate, specific, and sufficiently comprehensive diagnosis to enable the clinician to develop an optimal plan of treatment and, to the extent possible, estimate prognosis of cancer through pathological report.

Dermatopathology is a joint subspecialty of dermatology and pathology and to a lesser degree of surgical pathology that spotlights on the investigation of cutaneous illnesses at a minuscule and atomic level. It likewise envelops investigations of the potential reasons for skin infections at an essential level. Dermatopathologists work in close relationship with clinical dermatologists. Truth be told, the vast majority of them are prepared basically in dermatology themselves.

Histologic Pathology alludes to the minute examination of tissue keeping in mind the end goal to concentrate on the signs of sickness. In particular, in clinical solution, histopathology alludes to the examination of a biopsy or surgical example by a pathologist, after the example has been handled and histological segments have been set onto glass slides. Conversely, cytopathology looks at free cells or tissue sections.

The gastrointestinal (GI) pathology extends high caliber histopathological diagnosis on resections and endoscopic biopsies of the gastrointestinal tract. Changes in digestion like pain in the stomach or blood in the stool, indicates a disease or infection in the GI (Gastrointestinal tract). A Pathologist in gastrointestinal pathology will inspect these samples for signs of disease, infection or of cancer. The clinicians provide the most appropriate care for patients with accurate and early pathology report for diseases due to inflammation, infection, trauma, neoplasia, congenital-inherited disorders and iatrogenic injury. The Pathology report includes major conditions such as Gastro esophageal reflux, Barrett’s esophagus, Helicobacter pylori gastritis, stomach cancer, colorectal polyps and cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma.

Head and Neck Pathology is the area of surgical pathology that deals with disorders and conditions of the ear, nose and throat region and related areas of the head and neck. The Head and Neck Pathology also deals with mucosal and Mesenchymal lesions of the upper aero digestive tract (Para nasal sinuses, nasal cavity, oral cavity, nasopharynx, oropharynx, hypo pharynx, and larynx) and lesions of the thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, eye and orbit.Patients seek treatment from otorhinolaryngologists after the report from pathologists for diseases of the ear, nose, throat, or base of the skull, and for the surgical management of cancers and benign tumors of the head and neck. Head and neck pathology helps in the differentiation of cancerous lesions from noncancerous lesions, and in accurate diagnosis of various infections, inflammations and other pathological conditions affecting the head and neck region.

Breast Pathology can help in knowing the stage of a cancer and the grading of cancer that is a measurement of the extent of the tumor and its spread.Breast infections can be classified either with disorders of the integument, or disarranges of the regenerative framework. A greater part of breast sicknesses are noncancerous which can be confirmed with pathology report. A breast neoplasm might be favourable, as in fibro adenoma, or it might be harmful, in which case it is named breast carcinoma after pathological testing of biopsy. In either case it shows a lump in the breast which could be painful in few. Around 7% of breast bumps are fibro adenomas and 10% are breast malignancy, the rest being conditions of no disease.A tumor mass can be non-cancerous and can be due to something like swelling or inflammation.

Gynaecologic pathology is the subspecialty of pathology managing the analysis and study of infection including the female genital tract. The term Gynecologic derived from Greek gyno-(gynaikos) signifying "lady" and the ology signifying "investigation of". Gynaecologic pathology renders diagnosis on surgical specimens removed from the female genital tract. Gynaecologic pathology deals with cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, papillomavirus infection and trophoblastic tumors.

Molecular pathology is the study of blood samples and tissue on a molecular level. Molecular pathology has advanced tests such as sequencing performed on DNA or RNA from an individual’s blood or tissue helps in revealing the presence of genetic changes. The genetic changes can indicate which kind of cancer it is, helps in directing what type of therapy rational, and allows determining whether genetic predisposition is present to develop a disease or condition. Molecular and genomic pathologists will test the samples for the presence of certain molecular indicators that can affect prognosis of disease, diagnosis and treatment. Pathological report will help begin the best plan of care at a early stage. The purpose of molecular pathology is to evaluate the mechanisms of disease by identifying molecular and pathway alterations.

Cytopathology is the examination of cells extracted from tissues of the body under the microscope to determine the signs and characteristics of disease. Cytopathology is often called "cytology," a branch of pathology that deals with manifestations of disease at the cellular level.A cytopathology report tells us whether the cells studied contain signs of a disease. Cells examined for cytopathology can come from fluids extracted from body cavities - e.g. urine, sputum or fluids accumulating inside the chest or abdomen. Cells can also be extracted by inserting needles into lumps or diseased areas or tissues which is called fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC).

Neuromuscular pathology is the study of muscle and neurologic disease associated with muscle dysfunction. It is a part of neuropathology Muscle pathology is dealt together with neurologic disease. Neuromuscular pathology disorders commonly have impaired motor activity, i.e. slowed or obstructed transit with radiological evidence of transient or persistent visceral dilatation. Neuromuscular diseases include a wide-ranging variety of pathologies that can produce significant disability for the patient.  It differs from neuropathology because it is highly integrated with the clinical management of neuromuscular disease.

Hematopathology or hemopathology is the branch of pathology which studies diseases of hematopoietic cells. Blood malignancies are forms of cancer that begins in the cells of blood-forming tissue, such as the bone marrow, or in the cells of the immune system. Examples of hematologic cancer are acute and chronic leukaemia, lymphomas, multiple myeloma and myelodysplastic syndromes. Hematopathology deals in differentiation and diagnosing Myeloproliferative neoplasms, or MPNs, are hematologic cancers that arise from malignant hematopoietic myeloid progenitor cells in the bone marrow, such as the precursor cells of red cells, platelets and granulocytes.

The branch of Dentistry and Pathology  concerned with the etiology,pathogenesis, and clinical, gross, and microscopic aspects of oral and paraoral disease, including oralsoft tissues, the teeth, jaws, and salivary glands.The Pathology that deals with the structural and functional changes in cells, tissues, and organs of the oral cavity that cause or are caused by disease. Dental Pathology is any condition of the teeth that can be congenital or acquired. Oral and maxillofacial pathology (also termed oral pathology, stomatognathic disease, dental disease, or mouth disease) refers to the diseases of the mouth ("oral cavity" or "stoma"), jaws ("maxillae" or "gnath") and related structures such as salivary glands, temporomandibular joints, facial muscles and perioral skin (the skin around the mouth). Dental Pathology which deals with diseases and abnion (history and physical examination), will often enable the surgeon to narrow the diagnosis to two or three of the most likely possibilities.

Soft tissue pathology is the subspecialty of surgical pathology which deals with the diagnosis and characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the soft tissues, such as muscle, adipose tisssue, tendons, fascia, and connective tissues.  Soft Tissue Pathology is broadly defined to include metastatic melanomas, carcinomas, and lymphoid proliferations—in addition to all the tumors that “the flesh is heir to.” Soft tissue and bone tumors are a heterogeneous group of tumors most often classified according to the type of tissue they most closely histologically resemble. Soft tissue lesions strike fear in many pathologists as they are uncommon and may be difficult to diagnose. Malignant soft tissue lesions, i.e. cancerous soft tissue lesions, are usually sarcomas. Sarcomas are malignancies derived from mesenchymal tissue.

Endocrine pathology is a branch that is concerned with endocrinology and surgical pathology which manages the characterization of dysfunction and diagnosis of  non-neoplastic and neoplastic diseases of endocrinal organs that includes the exocrine pancreas, thyroid, and parathyroid glands. Endocrine pathology diagnosis of a dysfunctional thyroid rests largely on the observation and inspection of the patient. Endocrine pathology is complicated as many of these diseases affect several organs. Some have connotations which are familial; a few are diagnosed biochemical where others are identified only through biopsy.

Radiation Oncology encompasses all aspects of research that impacts on the treatment of cancer using radiation. Radiation can be given as a curative modality, either alone or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy. It may also be used palliatively, to relieve symptoms in patients with incurable cancers. The Radiotherapy/radiation therapy is broadly segmented into Teleradiotherapy, Brachy-radiotherapy and Metabolic Radiotherapy. Nuclear medicine is a branch of medicine that uses radiation to provide information about the functioning of a person's specific organs or to treat disease. Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues.

Research on nanotechnology cancer therapy extends beyond drug delivery into the creation of new therapeutics available only through use of nanomaterial properties. Although small compared to cells, nanoparticles are large enough to encapsulate many small molecule compounds, which can be of multiple types. At the same time, the relatively large surface area of nanoparticle can be functionalized with ligands, including small molecules, DNA or RNA strands, peptides, aptamers or antibodies. These ligands can be used for therapeutic effect or to direct nanoparticle fate in vivo. These properties enable combination drug delivery, multi-modality treatment and combined therapeutic and diagnostic, known as “theranostic,” action. The physical properties of nanoparticles, such as energy absorption and re-radiation, can also be used to disrupt diseased tissue, as in laser ablation and hyperthermia applications.

Trends in Cancer provide current updates, opinions, and discussions on an exhilarating current cancer research. Every issue of Trends in Cancer will be on the list of latest trends, important developments, and new ideas both within and outside their specialist area. A vaccine for cancer will either helps in preventing the development of a cancer or treats existing cancer. Vaccines that help in treating existing cancer are known to be therapeutic cancer vaccines. A major barrier to converting cancer therapies into curing is drug resistance in a very short span. Cancer cells often develop resistance to even the most effective therapeutic plans. Immunology in Cancer is a branch of biology that is concerned with understanding the correlation between the immune system and progression, development of cancer; Cancer immunology utilizes the immune system as a treatment for cancer.

Thyroid Pathology falls into two categories of pathology: Neoplastic and Endocrine. Endocrine disease lead to dysregulated levels of thyroid hormones, termed hypothyroidism (insufficient hormone) or hyperthyroidism (excess hormone). Cancerous disease of the thyroid is rare but can range from adenomas which are harmless to carcinomas which are highly aggressive. The thyroid gland is an important little endocrine organ in the anterior neck. The cytopathology of the thyroid gland is dealt elaborately in the thyroid pathology.
